Minutes, January 4, 1983, page 1 



E. SPECIAL ITEM: 

1. Presentation by Howard Friedman on progress of South Terminal Complex 
Construction Program. 

Mr. Howard Friedman said that on December 20 he met with Airport and 
Airline technical staffs. At this time an advanced set of drawings and 
specifications covering the programmed requirements were submitted for 
their final review and approval in terms of space requirements and 
technical needs. These items were also submitted to the seven 
architects to provide them with the scope of their work and 
descriptions of their responsibilities as a prelude to contract 
negotiations. 

Mr. Friedman hopes to have the final reactions from Airport and airline 
technical staffs tomorrow so that the drawings can be updated and 
submitted. 

Mr. Friedman said this is a very complex project and by expliciting 
noting the requirements for each architect for each phase of the work 
it is hoped that the number of extras will be minimized. The work is 
also being phased to minimize passenger discomfort and at the same time 
maintain optimum on-going operations. Unlike the North and Central 
Terminal projects the South Terminal will continue operations. 

Mr. Friedman showed sketches of the terminal to the Commission and 
offered a description. 



F. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

The following item is to be held in abeyance. 

2. Airport Travel Agency Director's Report reviewing airport 

travel agency alternatives and 
recommending a course of action. 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, said that the Commission, some time 
ago, asked staff to put together a report on alternatives for travel 
agencies at the Airport. Of the five alternatives a ticket pick-uo 
kiosk might be the most desirable/ requiring about 200 square feet of 
space. It is anticipated that the kiosk would be located in the North 
Connector. 

Mr. Turpen said he would be interested in the Commissions opinion. 

Mr. Turpen said there is 1100 square feet in the Connector and possibly 
that area should be looked at as a package. He explained that PT&T had 
approached the Airport with the concept of a meeting room service where 
a foreign businessman could come to San Francisco and conduct a 
transcontinental meeting without leaving the Airport. 

Commissioner Kadish said that when she asked staff to develop the idea 
of a travel agency at the Airport neither the Airport nor the airlines 
were in the current period of depression. The airlines would lose 10 
percent per ticket in any operation that was set up and she was not 
willing to add to their difficulties. 

Additionally, it was originally thought that by establishing a travel 
agency passengers would avoid lines at ticket counters, however, 
Commissioner Kadish wondered if passengers would not end up in lines at 
the travel agency. 



Minutes, January 4, 1983, page 2 



Commissioner Kadish asked that this item be held in abeyance. 

Mr. Turpen responded that he would get back to the Commission after 
staff had a chance to look at the entire 1100 square feet and put 
together ideas as to the types of activities that could be included in 
that space. 

Conmissioner Kadish asked if there was a meeting room for the public. 



Commissioner Coblentz responded that it would be inappropriate to 
allocate public funds for a special meeting room and he would be 
against it. 

3. Luggage Carts Report on the feasibility of no 

charge for use of luggage carts at 
the Airport. 

Mr. Terpen said this was in response to the possibility of using a 
no-fee system for luggage carts at the Airport. Based on staff's 
findings he recommended retaining the fee which covers maintenance, 
repair and replacement of the carts as well as personnel costs. 

4. Central Terminal Review - verbal report. 

Mr. Turpen asked Jason Yuen to brief the Commission on the status of 
the Central Terminal. 

Mr. Yuen, Director of Planning & Construction, said that there were 
eight active projects in the Central Terminal complex. He summarized 
each project as follows: (1) Boarding Area D is 97% percent complete 
and the Airport's portion of construction should be completed in a 
month and a half. (2) The Central Terminal Remodeling Project and the 
Central Terminal Tower Project are several months behind schedule but 
he is confident that the time will be made up and will be completed by 
the scheduled July date. (3) The Connectors are 80 percent completed 
and are on schedule. (4) Boarding Area D Apron Project is 66 percent 
completed and is on schedule. (5) The Upper Floor Remodeling Project 
has begun and administrative offices are expected to move in before the 
terminal is opened to the public. (6) The water fountain display in 
the atrium in Boarding Area D will be awarded at this meeting. (7) The 
project that includes the interior finishes of the USO, Airport 
Operations offices and other interior rooms of the Connectors was to be 
awarded today but the Human Rights Commission indicated that there were 
some problems with the Affirmative Action program and the item will be 
put over to the next meeting. The delay will not effect the schedule. 
(8) To demolish a small section of the old connector between the North 
and South Terminals. This will be awarded today. 

Commissioner Kadish said she visited the Central Terminal yesterday and 
was pleased with its progress. 

Commissioner Kadish suggested that ashtrays be built in to the ticket 
counters as they are in the Miami airport. 

Mr. Yuen said it was a good suggestion and he would follow up on it. 

Mr. Yuen told the Commission that the Airport has received a letter 
from the international carriers regarding seating in the Central 
Terminal. He showed a sample of the proposed fabric to the Commission 
and said that it has been approved by Gordon Johnson and Howard 
Friedman. Mr. Yuen said the furniture was guaranteed for five years 
and although there was a problem with soiling of the fabric, 
replacement was very simple. The airlines will be responsible for 
maintenance and Mr. Yuen recommended approval. 



Minutes, January 4, 1983, page 3 



Mr. Turpen said Airport staff would monitor the cleaning schedules. 

Mr. Yuen said he would draft a formal resolution for the next meeting,

Commissioner Coblentz recommended that political messages not be 
permitted. 

Commissioner Goosby recommended that general guidelines be established 
by the Commission. 

Commissioner Kadish suggested a Commission policy on advertising be 
adopted . 

Mr. Turpen said a list regarding types of advertising will be developed

of the Central Terminal.

NO. 83-0008 Contract 1200B(4) 133,368.00 

Total Modifications $210,037.00 

11. Resolution Authorizing Modification of Data Processing Management 
Contract with Gentry, Incorporated to Continue Current Services through 
end of Fiscal Year 1982-83. 

NO. 83-0009 Resolution authorizes the 

modification of the data processing 
management contract with Gentry, 
Incorporated to fund the

Minutes, January 4, 1983, page 5 



Gentry, Incorporated to include the 
development of software for a 
computerized Airport Revenue 
Information System, at a cost not 
to exceed $23,500. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if Airport staff would be trained to take 
over this function, 

Mr. Turpen replied that when the project was started there was 
difficulty finding people in City service who had data processing 
experience. The Airport opted to contract for this service and freeze 
the internal positions until such time as the City could develop 
appropriate staff. 

Commissioner Kadish remarked that while in service training was not 
included in the contract it was a verbal agreement. 

Virginia Peoples, Business Agent for Professional Technical Engineers, 
said she was curious about the five civil service positions. The 
Controller's office only approved one year instead of the five that 
Gentry had wanted. Now Gentry is asking for a two month extension. 
Ms. Peoples was concerned that Gentry would continue to ask for 
extensions until they have reached five years. She would like to see 
this taken over by trained civil service employees. 

Mr. Turpen replied that under the Proposition J analysis the concept 
was to bring this into concert with the fiscal year cycle. It requires 
an annual Proposition J analysis for continuation. Attempts had been 
made for some time to fill those positions through the civil service 
system but were unsuccessful. That is why the Airport went to a 
contract. 

Ms. Peoples asked that the item be put over for two weeks so she will 
have time to get in touch with the Data Processing Guild and talk to 
staff. 

Mr. Turpen said that since the two month extension is at no cost the 
Commission should continue with it and not impede the Airports data 
processing efforts. The Commission has the option, under Proposition 
J, to terminate the contract should the situation warrant. 

Commissioner Coblentz moved for approval. 

Mr. Turpen said he would be happy to meet with Ms. Peoples to provide 
her with any information she required.

Minutes, January 18, 1983, page 1 



E. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

2. Limousine Service 

Report on Limousine Service at SFIA. 

Mr. Turpen said the Airport staff presented the Commission with the 
procedures authorizing on-Airport limousines for adoption. There was a 
desire for third-parties to input suggestions to Airport staff 
regarding these procedures. Due to certain litigation matters the 
procedures were approved with the understanding that the third parties 
could submit their comments to Airport staff and staff would come back 
to the Commission with a recommendation. 

There has been only one outside proposal, from Mr. Levinson, on behalf 
of seven individual limousine operators. That proposal was essentially 
for an open limousine service similar, to the taxi operation, with free 
access to the terminals. 

Mr. Turpen recommended the current procedures for the authorization of 
limousines be maintained. 

Commissioner Goblentz commented that he has found Golden State 
Limousines soliciting at the Airport. He recommended this be checked 
and appropriate action be taken against them. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked about the status of the fee schedule that 
had been adopted and recommended to the courts in San Mateo County. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airports General Counsel, replied that there are 
some problems with citations issued to limousine operators because the 
District Attorney's office in San Mateo County doesn't fully understand 
the issues. The rest of the citation procedure is working fairly well. 

Commissioner Fleishell recommended a meeting with the San Mateo County 
District Attorney, and possibly one member of the Commission, to let 
him know what the Airport is trying to do. 

Commissioner Kadish asked if her recommendation to have written 
procedures sent to limousine applicants had been instituted. 

Mr. Turpen responded that many times Mr. Lanzilla, Airport Property 
Management, receives telephone inquiries as to the procedures; that 
once they learn of the procedures they have no further interest. 
Written information can be sent upon request. 

Mr. David Levinson, Attorney, commented that he was sorry more 
consideration was not given to the small businessman and that the 
Airport staff did not see any value in allowing vans to operate at the 
Airport. He also disagreed with staff's opinion that he had a basic 
misunderstanding of how the system operates with reference to his 
statements that limousine operators solicit. Ha told the Commission 
that the three companies solicit all the time in the carousel areas. 

Mr. Levinson felt that booths should be used and that he could not 
understand the need to have 10 limousines in order to apply for a 
permit. 

Mr. Levinson further commented that the relationship with San Mateo was 
not good. The District Attorney does not want to prosecute because in 
most cases, it would be discriminatory. 



Minutes, January 18, 1983, page 2 



Mr. Levinson read from a transcript of a hearing held December 3, 1982, 
where Judge Delarios commented that there was an application procedure 
as of November 16, 1982 but no procedure for granting or not granting a 
permit existed other than the issuance, subject to approval, of the 
Airports Commission. 

Mr. Levinson urged the Commission to encompass the single limousine 
operator into the system. 

Mr. Daniel Piccinini, attorney, was also concerned about the City 
getting their share. The three limousine services are supposed to pay 
the Airport $2.50 per trip to the city, yet there are no controls. As 
recommended in their proposal, Mr. Piccinini suggested that a check- 
out system, similar to the taxi cabs, be instituted. 

Mr. Piccinini told the Commission that should the qualifications for 
obtaining a permit remain burdensome they will be challenged in court. 
He asked for reasonable rules and regulations and that consideration be 
given to the small businessman. 

Mr. Ritchie, Teamsters, Local 265, said additional limousine service is 
not needed at the Airport. The Commission and staff has done an 
excellent job of setting up rules and regulations and controlling 
them, and that the Union has been in favor of this for a long time. 
He said it would be a shame to go back to the way it was when anyone 
with a car could go to the Airport and solicit. 

Commissioner Kadish asked for information regarding the controls on 
limousines, apropos the comments of Mr. Levinson and Mr. Piccinini. 

Commissioner Goosby commented that he did not understand why there was 
a minimum of 10 limousines. He also felt that there should have been 
competitive bidding, with specifications stipulating a specific length 
of time for operating at the Airport, rather than giving exclusive 
right to three companies. He felt that a general booth could be 
established so individual limousine operators could do business at the 
Airport under the same guidelines as the three major operators. 

Mr. Turpen said that in 1979 there were two limousine companies. That 
same year Holiday and Goldenstate petitioned for service at the 
Airport. The Commission asked staff to take a look at whether or not 
this was possible and what criteria governed limousine service at the 
Airport. One of the requirements was a Certificate of Need and Public 
Convenience. If a company had the certificate it was the Commission's 
opinion that they could apply for a permit, and, on a share-the-booth- 
basis, handle walk-ups and provide the 24-hour service that was 
necessary. 

There was a feeling at that time that if the number of people with a 
Certificate of Need and Public Convenience grew beyond those presently 
authorized it might be necessary for the Commission to look at. bidding 
a limousine service. Concurrently, there were a number of independent 
limousine operators at the Airport, and this presented a problem. 

In 1980, staff met with approximately 30 independent operators and 
procedures were established for operating on a pre-arranged basis. The 
difference between those 30 operators and the four permitted operators 
is availability and customer service. 

Mr. Turpen has some concerns about de-regulating and letting 30 
operators come in during peak hours and not be available during the 
less active hours as required by the limousine services who hold a 
Certificate of Need and Public Convenience. 

It has been the Commission's posture that this Certificate is required 
to operate from a booth and that has been the guideline. If the 
Commission feels this should be changed staff will take a look at it. 



Minutes, January 18, 1983, page 3 



At this point the majority of the independent operators are satisfied 
that they can operate in an effective manner. The companies occupying 
the booth are serving the customer. Comments about solicitation will 
be looked at but, for the most part, the problems with limousine 
service that existed in 1979 are no longer evident. He feels it is an 
equitable system and recommends continuing with the system. 

Commissioner Goosby asked Mr. Turpen to take a look at the 10 limousine 
requirement. 

Mr. Turpen said he would get back to the Commission with a report on 
their concerns about solicitation, revenue and the number of limousines. 

3. Progress Report on Parking Revenue Control 

Report on status of interim cash 
register installation and review of 
Computerized Parking Control System 
spec i f icat ions . 

Mr. Sheldon Fein, Assistant Deputy Director of Landside Operations, 
said that the cash registers in the garage were the original cash 
registers that were installed when the garage was built. It was 
impossible to get parts to repair them and many of the cash registers 
were not reporting accurate revenue control figures. All the registers 
were replaced over the holiday. 

The second item is an update on the progress of the plans and 
specifications of the new computerized revenue control system with 
Cerand and Company. Staff received the preliminary plans and 
specifications early in December and two weeks later a meeting was held 
with staff, Human Rights Commission, legal counsel, Engineering, 
Maintenance, Business & Finance, Accounting and APM staff to review and 
comment on the Cerand documents. Mr. Cerand is updating the plans and 
specifications and final contract documents will be received in two or 
three weeks and will be transmitted to the Commission. 

The following item was taken out of order. 

5. Progress Report on Highway Interchange Projects. 

Report on CalTrans 1 design and 
development of Highway 101, Airport 
Interchange and 1-380 Viaduct 
Project . 

Mr. Sheldon Fein said the detailed plans and specifications for the 
reconstruction of the Airport Interchange will be completed in July, 
1983 and sent to the Commission. The contract should go out to bid in 
December, 1983, and construction should begin early in 1984, and will 
take about two years. 

The project is divided into three phases Phase one is the connection 
between 380 and the Airport; phase two is the construction of a ramp, 
two lanes wide, leading into the Airport; phase three is the direct 
connection from the Airport into 380. Mr. Fein used a map of the area 
to explain the project. 

The following item was put over to the February 1, 1983 meeting. 

4. Airport Publications 

History of Airport Publications 

Commissioner Kadish suggested that items 3, 4 and 9, which are listed 
in the memo to the Commission, be consolidated into one pamphlet. 



Minutes, January 18, 1983, page 4 



Commissioner Kadish also questioned whether an Airport Flight Selector 
would be possible due to frequent changes in flight schedules. 

Commissioner Kadish said her major concern was the lack of an over-all 
policy for passenger information services. She also stated that the 
Airport is lacking a logo which would identify San Francisco 
International Airport. Additionally, it was never decided whether a 
staff person would oversee this project or whether someone outside the 
Airport would be chosen. She was also concerned that the Commission 
has never reacted on the current passenger information service and 
whether or not it was meeting passenger needs. 

Commissioner Kadish felt that presenting the Commission with nine 
different brochures was not the proper starting point. 

Mr. Turpen responded that he was not sure that the demand for this 
material existed. He asked for guidance from the Commission and for 
the opportunity for staff to re-think this project. 

Commissioner Coblentz said that brochures offering an annual report on 
the Airport and another brochure detailing facts about the Airport were 
unnecessary. He said the prime concern is to inform passengers of the 
locations of the various airlines and how to get to them. He also felt 
it important to list the Airport concessions and indicate their 
locations. Included in that brochure could be information on ground 
transportation and facilities and services for the elderly and disabled. 

Commissioner Goosby agreed with the comments made by both Commissioners 
Coblentz and Kadish. 

Commissioner Fleishell said the major purpose of printing a brochure is 
to send to international travel agencies and major companies to let 
them know about our available facilities and how we can accommodate 
their people. 

Commissioner Coblentz suggested that staff contact the Convention and 
Visitors Bureau regarding this project as they have experience in this 
area. 

6. Foreign Language Assistance Service 

Rsport outlining a course of action 
to provide foreign language 
assistance in the Terminal Building 
Complex. 

Mr. Turpen said that for some time staff has felt that a foreign 
language capability was needed in the Central Terminal. An attempt was 
made to develop this from Pacific Telephone & Telegraph and a number of 
other sources. Ken Hammon, Deputy Director of Business and Finance, 
brought this current proposal forward as an alternative. 

Mr. Ken Hammon explained that a foreign traveller would go to a phone 
marked with a placard in a foreign language instructing the passenger 
to dial an 800 number; the person on the other end would answer the 
passenger's questions. 

Commissioner Coblentz said that as long as there is a revokable permit 
and no capital expenditure, we had nothing to lose in giving it a try. 

Commissioner Goosby thought possibly a local firm could be found that 
could offer the same proficiencies. 

Mr. Turpen responded that these people were well established, but he 
would be happy to put the item over in order to look into it. 



Minutes, January 18, 1983, page 5 



Conmissioner Kadish agreed. 

Mr. Turpen replied that should staff fail to find a comparable local 
firm, this will be pursued on a 30-day revokable permit. 

Commissioner Coblentz commented that should a local firm be found, but 
wanted to charge the Airport a fee, he would vote against it. 

7. Map \fending Sales - Termination of Permit. 

Resolution recommending termination 
of the Map Box's permit to vend 
directional maps within the 
Terminal Building Complex from coin 
operated devices. 

Mr. Turpen recommended that the map boxes should be eliminated, even 
though we would be foregoing a small amount of revenue. Admin- 
istratively speaking, the time invested in trying to control this far 
exceeds any revenue the Airport receives. 

Commissioner Goosby stated that he was against removing the map boxes 
because of the revenue the City received, no matter what the amount. 

Commissioner Kadish said there was no reason why the maps couldn't be 
sold at concessions, and we would receive revenue from the concessions 
increased revenue. 

Mr. Turpen reiterated his recommendation. 



F. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 



Commissioner Kadish commended Gene Bordegaray, Jim Breslin and Jerry 
Copelan for their work, as commented on in the progress report from the 
Bureau of Planning and Construction. 



Commissioner Coblentz asked if there was any interest charged for 
delinquent accounts of over 60 days. 

Mr. Turpen responded that 1-1/2 percent was charaged according to 
Commission resolution. 



The following item was introduced by Commissioner Fleishell and 
unanimously adopted. 

Approval to send two Commissioners to Ontario, California, to attend 
the Airports Officials Policy Conference, February 9-11, 1983. 

NO. 83-0025 

Commissioners Goosby and Fleishell were selected to attend. 



Minutes, January 18, 1983, page 6 



G. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICIES OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 
The following items were unanimously adopted. 
Items 8 and 9 were called together. 

8. Principal Concessionaire: Merchandising Plan Approval. 

NO. 83-0026 Resolution approving Duty Free 

Shoppers 1 proposed merchandising 
plan of Central Terminal principal 
concession lease. 

9. Tenant Improvements 
Airport No. T-2717 

Duty Free Shoppers N.V. (Duty Free and Principal Concessionaire) 

NO. 83-0027 Resolution approving the schematic 

design for the Duty Free Concession 
and Principal Concessionaire 
facilities in Boarding Area D and 
authorizing construction subject to 
staff approval of construction 
documents at their own and sole 
expense. 

Mr. Turpen introduced Mr. Bob Mackura from Duty Free. 

Mr. Mackura showed the Commission renderings and blueprints of the 
facilities planned for the Central Terminal. Mr. Mackura told the 
Commission that they have already been approved by the Design Review 
Committee. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked Jason Yuen if he and Howard Friedman 
approved . 

Jason Yuen, Assistant Deputy Director of Planning and Control, 
responded affirmatively. 

Commissioner Goosby asked about their packaged foods and whether or not 
this conflicted with the Host lease. 

Mr. Mackura commented that the ability to carry packaged food was 
covered at the pre-bid conference and was part of the actual bid. 
Packaged food covers any packaged food that is primarily for 
consumption off -Airport. 

Mr. Mackura further commented that Host was consulted as to the wording 
of the contract prior to the bid. 

Commissioner Kadish noted that Duty Free wanted a permanent advertising 
sign and the Design Review Committee recommended a small plaque. 
Commissioner Kadish urged that the use of a small plaque be a 
requirement and not just a recommendation. 

10. Tenant Improvements 
Airport No. 2715 

Approval of Schematic Design for the Bank of America Facilities 
in the Central Terminal and Boarding Area D. 

NO. 83-0028 Resolution approving the schematic 

design for the Bank of America 
facilities in Central Terminal and 
Boarding Area D and authorizing the 
work to proceed through completion 
of construction documents subject 
to staff review. 

11. Award of Contract No. 1216

Minutes, January 18, 1983, page 7 



NO. 83-0029 Resolution awarding Contract 1216, 

Interior Finishing for North and 
South Terminal Connectors to Echo 
West, Inc., 101 Barneveld Ave., San 
Francisco, CA 94124, in the total 
amount of $384,309. The award 
amount is comprised of the base bid 
and all alternates. The budget for 
the recommended work is $400,000. 

12. Ronald Wagner Gift 

NO. 83-0030 Mr. Ron Wagner wishes to donate the 

ceramic mural, Panorama of San 
Francisco , by Guillermo Wagner 
Garnizo to the City of San 
Francisco for permanent display at 
San Francisco International Airport. 

This mural was reproduced on 
posters as part of the 'Save the 
Cable Car' campaign and has become 
a very familiar image of San 
Francisco. The piece is brightly 
colored and depicts a stylized 
scene of San Francisco. 

Should the Commission feel that 
this mural would enhance the 
Airport environment, the Commission 
can recommend to the San Francisco 
Art Commission that the mural be 
accepted as a gift to the City of 
San Francisco for display at San 
Francisco International Airport. 

13. Approval of Temporary Exhibitions Schedule. 

NO. 83-0031 The Airports Commission Temporary 

Exhibition program continues to be 
a positive and well received 
program by the community at large. 
The program was conceived of by the 
Commission to humanize the Airports 
environment and to improve the 
Airports public image. This 
program has successfully met these 
goals. 

The following item was put over. 

14. Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame Display 

The Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame 
was on display in Airport public 
space in the North Terminal through 
December 7, 1982. At that time, 
United Airlines received a request 
from Mr. Lou Spadia to relocate the 
Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame into 
their holding areas. The United 
Airlines Design Review Committee 
approved this request for the 
holding room areas at Gates 80, 81, 
82 and 83. These units are now in 
display in that area. 

Commissioner Kadish asked if there was a time limitation on the display. 



Minutes, January 18, page 8 



Mr. TUrpen responded that it is in United 1 s leasehold area and United 
has not established a time limit. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked why it was on our agenda if it's in 
United 's area. 

Mr. TUrpen responded that he felt it affected the general aesthetics 
and it was a change from an exhibition to a permanent location in the 
Airport. The tenant guide allows the Airport certain controls over 
permanent installations. 

Commissioner Coblentz recommended the item be put over in order to 
allow staff the time to meet with United Airlines to find out whether 
it will be a permanent exhibit or whether a time limit will be 
established.

D. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

1. Traveler's Aid 

Report on space allocation 
for Traveler's Aid in Central 
Terminal. 

Mr. Turpen, Airport Director, said this was a status report. The 
Commission had asked staff to look at possible locations for 
Traveler's Aid. Staff is presently looking at the FIS customs area 
and at the departure level. Staff is working with Traveler's Aid on 
their locations. Mr. Turpen does not believe there will be any 
objections and will let the Commission know when something has been 
decided upon. 

2. Time Line for Concession Construction Process 

Memorandum outlining a 
typical concession's timeline 
for constructing tenant space 
within the terminals. 

Mr. Turpen said that this item refers to the concession construction 
process after the award of a lease. The construction process takes 28 
weeks or 6-1/2 months which is an inordinate amount of time. The 
time-line was established so that staff could evaluate the time the 



Minutes, February 1, 1983, Page 1 



Commission authorizes for the construction of a concession. Mr. 
Turpen has discussed this with Commissioner Bernstein. Staff will 
work individually with members of the Commission and report back with 
recommendations from various types of concessions and various levels 
of activity with different time frames, and incorporate them into 
lease specifications in the future. 

Commmissioner Bernstein thought that 28 weeks was unconscionable. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if the concessions would be available when 
the Central Terminal opens. 

Mr. Turpen responded that the concessions were given 150 days to open 
or July 1, which ever is later. Their leases were all awarded prior 
to the first of the year. They are required by their lease to open by 
the opening date of the Central Terminal. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that this was an improvement over the 
last chart that was submitted. 

Mr. Turpen said the report was developed to show a typical time 
frame. Larger projects might require more time and smaller projects 
might require less time. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked for an interim report on the status of 
concessions. 

Mr. Turpen said a report would be given at the second meeting of each 
month until the opening of the Central Terminal. 

3. Valet Parking 

Report covering the six-month 
period from May to December, 
1982, on valet parking 
service as requested by the 
Commission. 

Mr Turpen said this report was in response to the Commission's request 
for a quarterly review. The valet parking operation continues to make 
money. 

Commissioner Coblentz commented that he would move to discontinue the 
valet operation if it loses money. 



E. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

Commissioner Goosby asked that the status of the electronic information 
board be placed on the Trailing Calendar. 

Mr. Turpen responded that it was calendared for the next meeting. 



Commissioner Kadish said the Director was supposed to send monthly reports 
to the Commission on the cleanliness of the restrooms, and they have not 
received anything since October. 



Commissioner Bernstein brought up an earlier recommendation of naming 
Airport streets. 

Commission Coblentz approved naming a street after Commissioner McDonnell, 
the two former Mayors, and the late Supervisor Harvey Milk. 



Minutes, February 1, 1983, Page 2 



Commissioner Goosby suggested the item put over so that staff would have 
the opportunity to submit a map to the Commission indicating the number 
and size of Airport streets. He also suggested that the Commission 
establish guidelines for selection of names. 

Mr. Turpen said staff would develop a map to submit to the Commission, and 
the item will be calendared for the second meeting in April. 



F. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICIES OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 

The following items were unanimously adopted: 

4. Resolution Awarding Extension of Professional Services Agreement 
Airport Medical Clinic 

No. 83-0039 

Commissioner Coblentz said the resolution authorizes the extension of 
the Airport Medical Clinic contract for six-months. He commented that 
he had no doubt that the Medical Clinic has readered an invaluable 
service to the Airport. He said that the Commission President 
received a letter from Dr. Smookler indicating that should the 
contract be extended beyond the six months, he would waive any 
subventions received from the City. Commissioner Coblentz felt that 
should the six-month extension be granted, the Medical Clinic should 
receive the subventions for that period of time. 

Commissioner Coblentz moved the resolution with the understanding that 
whatever subventions were granted in the past be granted on a 
proportionate basis for the six-month period. The extension would 
give the Commission the opportunity to examine the other options as 
set forth in Staff's memorandum. 

Commissioner Goosby recommended the Medical Clinic go out to bid, 
after the six-month period. 

Commissioner Coblentz would not accept that as part of his motion, 
stating that he would not commit himself to anything at this time but 
would rather leave the question open to the Commission. Presently, he 
has some serious reservations in opening this up to competitive 
bidding. 

Commissioner Bernstein said he, too, was opposed to a bidding process 
for the Medical Clinic at this time. 

Commissioner Goosby suggested that an alternative to the bidding 
process was to negotiate with other medical groups in order to get a 
competitive figure. 

Commissioner Fleishell remarked that it was his recollection that the 
Commission had already voted to instruct the Director to prepare 
competitive bids. If that is the case, and there has been a change of 
sentiments, then that resolution should be rescinded. 

Commissioner Coblentz reiterated that his motion calls for a six-month 
extension and to leave the option at the absolute discretion of the 
Commission. During the six months, the Commission can decide how to 
proceed. He does not want to commit to any option at this time. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that staff was directed to develop 
specifications, and a policy motion was not passed. Commissioner 
Coblentz' motion buys us time to consider the various options. 

Commissioner Coblentz hoped that during the six-month period, the 
Director would speak to other groups, without indicating any intention 
of going out to bid, to determine their interest and what they could 
offer the City in the way of medical services and then report back to 
the Commission. 

Minutes, February 1, 1983, Page 3 



Mr. Turpen said he would be happy to do that. The memo attempted to 
outline the options available to the Commission. 

Commissioner Goosby asked how soon staff would have to have the 
Commission's decision. 

Mr. Turpen responded that staff would need to know by the second 
meeting in March. He said the item would be placed on each agenda as 
a Director's Report until that meeting to keep the item before the 
Commission. 

Items 5, 6, and 8 were called together and unanimously adopted, 
subject to approval of pictures to be submitted to the Commission. 

5. Resolution Approving Soaps and Lotions Cart Design 

No. 83-0040 Resolution approving tenant's South 

Terminal Soaps and lotions Cart 
Design. 

6. Resolution Approving Schematic Design of Central Terminal Candy Shop 

No. 83-0041 Resolution approving schematic 

design of Skyline Candy and Gift's 
Central Terminal Candy Shop. 

8. Boarding Area D Departure Lounge Seating 

No. 83-0043 Resolution approving the design of 

the departure lounge seating in 
Boarding Area D to be provided by 
the airline. 

7. Award of Contract 1234 

Airport Phase III Landscaping 
$324,258 

Nd. 83-0042 Resolution awarding Contract 1234, 

Airport Phase III Landscaping, to 
Goldenstate Landscaping in the 
amount of $324,258. 

The budget for the recommended 
work is $350,000. 

The award of this contract is based 
upon the Base Bid and all 
Alternates. 

This work is required to complete 
the last phase of the Airport's 
terminal roadway beautification 
plan. 

Commissioner Coblentz recommended that in light of the letter from the 
Human Rights Commission the resolution, as presented to the 
Commission, be adopted. 

Commissioner Fleishell said he asked Mr. Garibaldi, Airport General 
Counsel, if it was possible to have a sealed bid with the amount in 
the envelope and have the supporting documentation sent to staff under 
separate cover. In this way, if a bidder failed to comply, staff 
would have the opportunity to offer assistance before the bids were 
opened. 

Mr. Garibaldi responded that a procedure could be developed so long as 
none of the documents contain competitive material that should be kept 
secret. There are some practical problems in that many of the 
documents are prepared at the last moment as part of the bidding 
process. Mr. Garibaldi recommended that staff be allowed a couple of 
Minutes, February 1, 1983, Page 4 



weeks to review this matter to resolve the practical aspects of the problem, 
and return to the Commission with a report as to what can be done. 

9. Contract with the Parry Company - 
$10,000.00 

No. 83-0044 Contract with the Parry Company to 

provide noise impact contours for 
the 12-month period preceding 
December 31, 1982, and June 1, 
1983, to be used to calculate the 
dwelling unit count. $10,000.00 

10. Approval of Lease and Use Agreement for Mexicana Airlines 

No. 83-0045 Resolution approving execution by 

the City of a Lease and Use 
Agreement with Mexicana Airlines 
for a 30-year term, effective July 
1, 1981. 

Commissioner Fleishell commented that the statement referring to the 
"fiscal and political turmoil in Mexico" was inappropriate and that 
such comments should not be made in covering documents. 

11. Report on Holiday Festival 

No. 83-0046 Positive response to the Holiday 

Festival Program from the 
passengers and the South Bay 
Community. 

Suggestions made from the Airport 
staff regarding future Holiday 
Festival programs, should the 
Airports Commission support the 
concept of the program. 

Commissioner Kadish said staff deserved the commendation that appears 
in the resolution. The Holiday Festival brought great credit to the 
Airport. 



G. CONSENT CALENDAR OF ROUTINE ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS: 
The following items were unanimously adopted. 

12. Commendation for Richard Mayer, Former Art Commissioner

H. PUBLIC HEARING 

The following item was unanimously adopted. 

19. Resolution Approving Proposed Airports Commission Budget for Fiscal 
Year 1983-84. 

No. 83-0054 Resolution approves the budget 

estimate submitted by the Director 
of Airports and directs Airports 
Commission staff to file the budget 
with the Controller's Office, in 
compliance with City budget 
instructions. 

Commissioner Bernstein told Mr. Warren Hanson that his item was a 
personnel matter and would be taken up in closed session. 

Mr. Turpen highlighted the 1983-84 Airport budget for the Commission 
with the aid of charts. He explained that terminal revenues have 



Minutes, February 1, 1983, Page 6 



gone up to $55.6 million, an increase of about $5.4 million. The 
terminal area makes up about 47 percent of the budget. 

The lion share comes from airline rentals and concession revenues, 
$21.3 million and $19 million, respectively. 

The airfield is taken care of by landing fees, about $24 million. 
Groundside comes from the garage, $17 million, and $6 million from 
hotel, taxi revenues and service stations. 

Interest income dropped due to a drop in interest rates. 

Terminal concessions will go up slightly due to the opening of the 
Central terminal. 

The total budget is $118 million, an increase of $15 million, due in 
part to the sale of Series C Bonds, an increase in personnel costs 
due to salary standardization, the funding of Central Terminal 
custodians which were defunded for 11 months this year, an increase 
in utilities, materials and supplies and salary standardization for 
the fire department, City Attorney, and other services the Airport 
buys from the City and County of San Francisco. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked why a risk manager was listed in the 
budget since the item was eliminated as a result of the settlement. 

Cheryl Davis, Budget Manager, responded that the item was for 
insurance premiums not a risk manager. She explained that the item 
was poorly labeled. 

Commissioner Fleishell recommended that an analysis be done on the 
policies the Airport has. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked why the Airport has never responded to 
the Public Utilities Commission on their analysis of our electric 
rates and how the Airport can save money. 

Mr. Turpen responded that the Airport volunteered to conduct the 
original study on energy conservation with reduced illumination in 
the customs area. The program will proceed next year with relamping 
the North Terminal with fixtures requiring less power. The Central 
Terminal is designed for energy conservation, and the South Terminal 
will be relamped when that project has been completed. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked if the program reflected the 
suggestions of the Public Utilities Commission. 

Mr. Turpen responded that it met the intent. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked why we were spending $500,000 a year to 
monitor noise when residents in the surrounding area can use the 
information to sue us. 

Commissioner Fleishell responded that conditions of the variance 
granted by the State of California require certain monitoring 
procedures. 

Comnissioner Kadish, in reading the amendments, thanked Mr. Turpen 
for removing a number of the items she had called to his attention. 

Mr. Turpen asked that the Commission act on the budget, exclusive of 
the item concerning Mr. Warren Hanson, and that that item be taken 
up in closed session. 

Commissioner Kadish noted in Mr. Paul Van Wert's letter that he made 
reference to the FIS area baggage conveyor system no longer being an 
Airport responsibility. She asked if this has been corrected. 

Mr. Turpen responded that it had. 

Mr. Warren Hanson submitted a written statement to the Commission 
(see attached) . 

Minutes, February 1, 1983, Page 7 



I. COMMUNICATIONS: 

Conmissioner Coblentz, referring to Mr. Turpen's letter to Commissioner 
Bernstein on the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame, indicated his reservations 
about a permanent location for this exhibit. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that a bad precedent would be set in 
establishing permanent locations for anything other than Charter required 
exhibits. 



J. TRAILING CALENDAR: 

There was no discussion of items on the Trailing Calendar. 



L. ADJOURNMENT TO CO INTO CLOSED SESSION: 

There being no further calendared business before the Commission, the 
meeting was adjourned at 3:30 p.m. to go into closed session.

Hon. Dr. Z. L. Goosby 

Hon. J. Edward Fleishell 

Public Relations Officer 

San Francisco International Airport 

Proposed Airports Commission Budget for Fiscal Year 1983-84 



As a lifelong resident of San Francisco and your Public 
Relations Officer these past ten years, I appear before this Honorable 
Commission to recommend and request that the only permanent classified 
Civil Service public relations position NOT be deleted from the 
Airport Staff as suggested in the last minute amendment to the proposed 
Airports Commission Budget. 

As you know, the need for professional public relations 
counsel and service to the Airport was forseen and provided by the 
City and County over 25 years ago, before our Municipal Airport was 
renamed San Francisco International. 

Since those early days, San Francisco International has 
been developed, largely under this Honorable Commission, into one of 
the world's foremost air terminals, with 44 airlines and more than 
150 other tenants, serving during 1982 more than 22.3 million air 
travelers - a service volume which has recently resumed its pre- 
recession growth rate. 

With the dynamics and magnitude of our operation in mind, 
Mr. Turpen, in his letter to me January 27, said he shared my concern 
that the public relations function at the Airport be as comprehensive 
and effective as possible, and that he is considering alternative 
ways of providing the public relations function. 

My full support and strong concurrence continue to. go 
to Mr. Turpen in his concern with future public relations efforts 
for our Airport. Being aware of the extent of professional public 
relations staff support provided to other major world airports, and 
quite a few smaller airports such as our aggressive and farsighted 



RE: MEMBERS, AIRPORTS COMMISSION -2- January 31, 1PS3 



friends across the Bay, I cannot concur, professionally, that 
Mr. Turpen's best first step is to dispense with the only permanent 
staff assistance available in this specialized discipline. Such a 
move would be contrary to currently accepted management principles 
and practices of effective staff utilization. 

I agree with Mr. Turpen, and I have pointed out to him 
several times, that the Airport's Public Relations effort has not 
been all that it could be. Since my assignment to the Airport, 
comprehensive public relations plans and programs have been proposed. 
None have been adopted or implemented. Recommended budgets for public 
relations have been slashed or eliminated, and highly successful, 
visible goodwill programs, such as public Airport tours and multi- 
lingual services, have fallen by the wayside due to staff reductions 
and lack of funds. Restrictions and lack of support staff notwith- 
standing, current stated Airport MBO goals for public relations 
continue to be met. 

Without dwelling upon the numerous non-related full time 
duties and responsibilities imposed on the Public Relations Office, 
I would invite your attention to the record of this Honorable Commission, 
which demonstrates that several years of your public relations officer's 
effort have been diverted to acting as your Secretary. During these 
years, and at other extended periods, professional staff public 
relations services, although always available, were not used by the 
Airport. 

As a San Franciscan, vitally concerned with the future 
of our City's Airport and its continued paramount role in our Nation's 
air transport industry, and as your Public Relations Officer, I 
request and recommend that the Public Relations Officer NOT be deleted 
from the Airport Staff, but rather that this Honorable Commission 
receive and act favorably upon plans and budgets for active public 
relations programs to develop reciprocal understanding and goodwill 
between San Francisco International and its diverse publics. 

I look forward to your favorable consideration and to the 
opportunity of continued service to this Honorable Commission, to the 
ultimate benefit of the City and County of San Francisco and San 
Francisco International Airport.

In accordance with the Brown Act, 
Section 54957.1, Jean Caramatti, 
Commission Secretary, announced 
the unanimous adoption of 
resolution 83-0055 authorizing

D. SPECIAL ITEM: 



1. Officer Robert V. Sheehan 
Officer of the Year 

No. 83-0058 



Presentation of plaque to Airport 
Police Officer Robert V. Sheehan 
for Airport Police Officer of the 
Year. 



Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, introduced Officer Sheehan and his 
wife, Mary Ann, to the Commission. He reminded them that Officer 
Sheehan had been before the Commission earlier in the year to receive 
a commendation for his act of heroism in rescuing a man trapped in a 
burning automobile. Officer Sheehan is now being honored as Airport 
Police Officer of the Year for 1982. He has been chosen for his 
outstanding performance, personal resourcefulness, alertness, and 
individual bravery throughout 1982. 



Minutes, February 15, 1983, Page 1 



Commissioner Bernstein presented Officer Sheehan with a plaque on 
behalf of the Commission, congratulated him on his magnificent record 
and thanked him for his efforts. 



Commissioner Bernstein said there was a request from the San Mateo 
Central labor Council to address the Commission on a problem at the 
Airport. He said that since the calendar was so short, the 
Commission would attend to it first and then let the Labor Council 
address the Commission. 



E. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

2. Medical Clinic- -Verbal Report 

Report outlining pre-bid 
conference. 

Mr. Turpen reminded the Commission that the time frame dictates that 
the Commission should advise staff as to the method that they prefer 
in re-bidding or authorizing a medical clinic facility at the Airport 
by March 15. Mr. Turpen asked the Commission if they had further 
instructions for staff. 

Commissioner Kadish noted that there was no requirement for length of 
experience designated in the specification. 

Mr. Turpen said he would look into it. 

3. Foreign language Assistance Service 

Report outlining lease 
specifications and results of 
contracts with local operators. 

Mr. Turpen said staff has continued to investigate a foreign language 
assistance service. There has been some interest from local firms, 
and staff is continuing to explore the degree of interest and their 
ability to provide the type of service necessary. 

Be will advise the Commission as staff's efforts become more concrete. 

Commissioner Goosby suggested staff contact other airports to see if 
they have this type of service to determine if we are the right track. 

Commissioner Goosby commended Mr. Turpen on his report. 

Commissioner Kadish noted that instructions were to be placed over 
some existing telephones and asked for a justification as to why 
those phones were selected. 

Mr. Turpen responded he would get back to her. 

4. Central Terminal Construction Review — Verbal Report 

Mr. Turpen asked Mr. Jason Yuen, Administrator, Bureau of Planning 
and Construction, to brief the Commission. 

Mr. Yuen said the Central Terminal project continues to be on time 
and within budget. The Mayor expressed her concern last month over 
the budget, but Mr. Yuen pointed out that every project in the 
Central Terminal complex is within the Commission-approved budget. 



Minutes, February 15, 1983, Page 2 



Mr. Yuen also told the Commission that since the start of the 
Modernization and Replacement Program, there has not been a single 
project that had bids submitted beyond the Commission-approved 
budget, and the total costs of all completed projects have never 
exceeded the budget. 

Mr. Yuen pointed this out because there are awards of contracts to 
seven architects for the South Terminal projects and he is going on 
record that there is a tradition to maintain, and he expects them to 
maintain it. 

5. Custodial Maintenance in the Terminals — Verbal Report 

Mr. Turpen said that in the interest of time he would send a report 
to the Commission. 

6. Limousine Service 

Report on Limousine Service at San 
Francisco International Airport 

Mr. Turpen said this report is a response to previous questions of 
the Commission regarding limousine service at the Airport and a 
follow-up to staff's submission of a precedural outline last November. 

Mr. Turpen briefly explained that a copy of the written procedure is 
offered to anyone calling the Airport for information on limousine 
service. 

Mr. Turpen also told the Commission that the Airport undercover 
detail, operating on the lower level arrivals area, to date have 
found no authorized limousine companies involved in unauthorized 
solicitation. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if the Public Utilities Commission 
regulation calling for 12-passenger limousines was a rigid 
requirement, as some limousines at the Airport carry only five or six 
passengers. 

Mr. Turpen said the report does not address those questions, and he 
would look into it. 

Mr. Levinson, Attorney, said the report did not cover anything it was 
supposed to cover. It was his understanding that the requirement of 
10 limousines for obtaining a permit was to be addressed. He asked 
that he be notified of a date when it would come before the 
Commission. 

Mr. Turpen said it was covered in the report under Item A. He 
suggested that Mr. Levinson might want to meet him after the meeting 
to go over the report and he would provide him with a copy. 



G. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 

The following item was unanimously adopted, subject to HRC approval of 
ED-2, Esherick and Gensler. 

7. Professional Services Agreements with Seven (7) Architectural Firms 
for the South Terminal Renovation Program 

No. 83-0059 Resolution awarding contracts to 

provide professional services for

Commissioner Coblentz said this item has been presented at great 
length by Howard Friedman and Jason Yuen, and he thinks it meets with 
everyone's approval. 

Jason Yuen introduced the architects to the Commission. 

Mr. Yuen told the Commission that the Human Rights Commission just 
informed him that they have not yet approved ED-2, Esherick or 
Gensler. He recommended the contracts be awarded subject to HRC 
approval within two weeks.

Exit Road and authorizing Director 
to invite bids for said concession. 

Mr. Turpen said this was a re-submission of an item presented to the 
Commission at a previous meeting requesting authorization to invite 
bids on the Cable Car Message unit. 

Commissioner Goosby asked why alcohol and tobacco were eliminated. 

Commissioner Kadish responded that it was done at the request of the 
Commission. 

Commission Gossby does not recall an official vote, and, had there 
been one, he would have voted against it. Jfe felt a large source of 
revenue was being eliminated. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if the Public Utilities Commission had a 
policy with regard to these kinds of ads. 

Mr. Turpen responded that neither BART nor Muni Railway, two agencies 
the Commission specifically requested staff to follow up on, had 
policies. 

Commissioner Coblentz rescinded his original request to eliminate 
alcohol and tobacco advertising. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if the annual minimum should be raised. 

Mr. Skip Conrad, Airport Property Management, responded that when the 
minimum was first looked at, alcohol and tobacco advertising was 
included, and had not yet been adjusted to reflect the elimination of 
either. 

Commissioner Kadish recommended that since all advertising must be 
preliminarily reviewed by the Director and approved, that there be 
balanced advertising.

F. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

Comnissioner Coblentz said that he has read the statement by Mayor 
Feinstein, dated February 14, regarding the lay-off of airline workers and 
her strong feelings about what has transpired. He also read the Mayor's 
request of the City Attorney to draw up legislation that will clear away 
any ambiguity about prevailing wages at the Airport; offering her office 
to resolve differences between Qantas and the machinists union; and, her 
personal letter to Chief Executive Officers of all airlines at the 
Airport, re-emphasizing her unwavering support for prevailing wages for 
all workers there. 

Commissioner Coblentz questioned the Commissions jurisdiction or power in 
this issue. 

Mr. Richard Holober, Secretary of the San Francisco Airport Labor 
Coalition and the San Mateo Labor Council, AFL-CIO, said they have, over 
the past several months, tried to go through the proper channels of city 
government and have gone from agency to agency only to be told it is 
outside of their jurisdiction, and they can do nothing. 

They are before the Commission as the body most directly concerned with 
the welfare of the Airport to appeal to them for their support and 
assistance. 

Mr. Holober mentioned the skycap situation at the Airport reminding the 
Commission that several months ago Allied Maintenance, the company that 
employs skycaps, approached the union and told them that the various 
airlines that contract with Allied had advised them that unless they 
drastically cut their costs Allied would be replaced and a cheaper skycap 
service would be brought in. As a result, Allied advised the union that 
all wages would be reduced to minimum wage, all health benefits and 
pension contributions by the employer would be removed and all accrued 
sick leave would be taken away. 

Allied Maintenance subsequently lost their contract for janitorial 
services to World Services, a Korean-owned company primarily employing 
Korean nationals. They house their employees in company housing and 



Minutes, February 15, 1983, Page 7 



transport their employees to and from work in company buses. It is his 
understanding that these employees receive the minimum wage and from those 
wages comes the cost of transportation and housing. Mr. Holober said that 
because they are foreign nationals and have problems with the English 
language they are hard to reach and organize. 

Subsequent to that event, the guard company employed by a number of 
airlines was replaced by another company and that company was eventually 
replaced by another. You have a situation where as soon as the employees 
try to organize and stand up for their rights, their employment is 
terminated and another outfit is brought in. 

Western Airlines' janitors were laid off in December and foreigners were 
hired to replace them. 

The latest example is Qantas. The machinist union opened negotiations 11 
months ago and at that time the attorney who represents Qantas advised the 
union that on completion of negotiations they had no intention of 
employing any mechanics or ground service employees in the future. The 
only subject they were prepared to bargain with was severance pay. On 
February 6, the Qantas employees were given termination notices. 

Two non-union companies, Servair and Gateway, were hired to perform this 
work. 

When the skycaps appealed to the Commission for assistance they were told 
the City's prevailing wage law could offer relief, however, the Commission 
was not the appropriate body to address. The union representing skycaps 
filed charges with the Human Rights Commission, under Section 12B of the 
City's Administrative Code, requesting the Director of the Human Rights 
Commission to investigate the situation. If the findings were that the 
prevailing wage law was being violated, the Airport Director and 
Commission would be notified to put those airlines involved on notice that 
they would be evicted from the Airport should they fail to comply with the 
prevailing wage law within 60 days. 

Mr. Holober said City government has obstructed every move the union has 
tried to make, specifically naming the City Attorney's office and the 
Human Rights Commission. The Human Rights Commission threw the case out 
on the grounds that there was no jurisdiction, citing Federal pre-emption 
as one reason and the fact that skycaps were not sub-contractors of the 
Airport as another. 

This decision is being appealed and a show cause hearing before three 
Human Rights Commision members has been requested. They have also 
requested that the City Attorney be removed as legal counsel in that 
appeal on the grounds that he is already serving as legal counsel to the 
Director of the Human Rights Commission. 

The other issues are still under investigation. If the findings are not 
favorable the Union will ask the Airports Commission to enact legislation 
establishing prevailing wages, benefits, and conditions for all airlines 
and their subcontractors. 

The letter from Mayor Feinstein, though in support, kicks the matter back 
to the City Attorney who has offered no relief in this situation. 

Mr. Robert Krepelke said he reported to his job at Qantas on February 6 
and found out he had been replaced by a non-union, unskilled laborer. He 
feels that a foreign company should not be allowed to come into this 
country and use union-busting techniques. 

Mr. Krepelke told the Commission he has five children, ranging in ages 
from seven years to a one-year old, and needs his job to support his 
family and for medical benefits. 

Commissioner Goosby asked how much less an hour these employees make. 

Mr. Krepelke responded that in his job as a mechanic, it was probably $3 
or $4 an hour less. 



Minutes, February 15, 1983, Page 8 



Mr. Hirosni Tarumi, a Japan Airlines employee, told the Commission that 
they were currently in negotiations for a new contract and were reaching 
the point where they will either have to accept the proposal or face being 
laid off. 

Mr. Tarumi told the Commission that united States carriers in Japan must 
answer to Japanese unions, and he is sure the same applies to Australia 
and countries in Europe. He wondered why the same situation could not 
exist in the United States. 

He appealed to the Commission to intervene. 

Mr. Charles Perkel, Executive Officer of Service Employees Union, local 
77, which primarily represents janitors, said they were turned out by 
airlines who are signatory to a lease and use agreement which specifically 
provides that they must comply with Section 12B of the City's 
Administrative Code, dealing with non-discrimination and prevailing wages. 

Mr. Perkel cited Western Airlines work force as an example of a cross 
section of our community. They contributed not only to the work force at 
the Airport, but as consumers and tax payers in the surrounding 
communities. They have been replaced by a firm who imports Korean 
nationals. Officially, these people are paid minimum wage, however, it is 
rumored this is not the case. Mr. Perkel told the Commission that a 
detective agency found that the owners are not Koreans but a racist 
operation out of the state of Texas. 

Mr. Perkel asked the Commission to enforce the law for the protection of 
their members. 

Mr. Vic Thuesen, skycap attorney, reminded the Commission that the skycaps 
filed the initial complaint with them last May and had asked the 
Commission to enforce the prevailing wage resolution. 

Mr. Thuesen said the Commission had informed him that they had no 
authority to enforce the Lease and Use Agreement, but that the City and 
County of San Francisco did have the authority. On that basis, a 
complaint was filed with the Human Rights Commission in July or August of 
last year. Nothing happened with that complaint. They met with Mayor 
Feinstein in December, and, in the presence of the City Attorney and the 
Director of the Human Rights Commission, she said she would not tolerate 
those practices at the Airport and she would instruct the members of the 
Commission to take action to see that the Lease and Use Agreement is 
abided by. 

Three weeks later the Human Rights Commission issued a report indicating 
that neither the Commission nor the City and Country of San Francisco had 
the authority to halt the practices at the Airport. 

Mr. Thuesen commented that it might take a complete Airport shut-down in 
order to get this issue addressed. 

Mr. Thuesen explained that they were here today because it is within the 
Airports* jurisdiction to enforce the various resolutions of the Airport. 
More specifically, though, they were before the Commission because they 
are a party to a Lease and Use Agreement that contains a provision that 
has allowed the airlines to strip workers of conditions, or, failing that, 
fire them. 

The skycaps agreed to be stripped of those conditions so they could keep 
their jobs; the Qantas people were not even given a choice. 

Mr. Thuesen appealed to the Commission to stand up to the airlines and not 
push this off on another City agency. 



Minutes, February 15, 1983, Page 9 



Mr. Willie L. Williams, Skycap, told the Commission he has been employed 
at the Airport for 32 years. 

Early last year Allied Aviation approached the Skycaps and told them they 
would lose all accumulated sick leave, vacation days and the pension fund, 
and would be working at minimum wage. They were told to either agree to 
it, or face being laid off. 

Mr. Williams asked the Commission for their assistance. 

Mr. Steve Van Zant, President of Local Lodge 1213, asked the Commission to 
intervene with Servair to stop the harrassment to which his members are 
being subjected. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked Mr. Turpen to check into this and take care of 
it. The police are there not only to maintain law and order but to allow 
these individuals the right to picket peacefully. 

Mr. Van Zant suggested that since airlines are charged a landing fee on a 
sliding scale, foreign countries should be charged a departure tax on a 
sliding scale, and cited Australia's $20.00 departure as compared with our 
$3.00 departure tax. 

Mr. Van Zant briefly commented on Qantas' "financial plight" and indicated 
that Qantas admitted in the press to a 40 percent increase in revenue. 
They took over $140 million out of the United States and left only about 
$20 million. 

Mr. Van Zant told the Commission that if they had any questions they would 
like to ask the local about Qantas' finances, to please contact them. 

Mr. Ron Van Zandt, member of Local 77, said they lost their contract to 
World Airlines because World submitted a far lower bid. Last year, the 
company for which they worked used the threat of cheaper labor to get them 
to make concessions, so they took less to keep from losing their jobs. 

There are about 70 members out of work, and he would like to see something 
done about it. 

Mr. Rodney Andregg said he has been a loyal employee of Qantas Airlines, 
and he feels he has been used and abused. He felt the foreign carriers 
were coming into the United States and using their employees like 
puppets. He appealed to the Commission to do all they can to remedy the 
situation. 

Mr. J. B. Martin, Automotive Machinists Local 1305, gave his approval and 
agreement with what previous speakers have said. He commented that the 
labor movement in San Francisco and San Mateo County would not sit idly by 
and allow the union-busting tactics that seem to be spreading at the 
Airport. 

The employees will be supported whether they decide to shut down the 
Airport or go after the politicians and whomever is responsible for 
sitting idly by or hiding behind a Deputy City Attorney's opinion. 

Mr. Earl L. Williams, skycap, asked why there have always been good-faith 
negotiations until last year, and why the Airport doesn't apply the 
prevailing wage law. 

Mr. Al Lannon, President, I.L.W.U. #6, said his members ran into the same 
problem with Duty Free. They ran into a union-busting campaign when they 
approached the union for help in organizing to try and get the prevailing 
wage. 

Mr. Lannon told the Commission that an injury to one is an injury to all. 

Commissioner Goosby said the Commission is in favor of the Mayor's 
comments and her proposed action. They are frustrated by the constraints 



Minutes, February 15, 1983, Page 10 



the City Attorney has placed on them. They are detrimental to their 
ability to act, and until they can find a way to overcome the constraints, 
their hands are tied. 

Commissioner Goosby applauded the quality of the statements made and the 
conduct of those present. He complimented them on uniting and coming 
forward as a group. He was pleased to see Local 6 present as a 
demonstration of support from San Francisco labor. He would like to know 
Jack Crowley's position on this. 

Commissioner Goosby concluded by saying the Commission supports the Mayor 
and offers any assistance necessary. 

Commissioner Kadish, commenting on a statement made earlier, said the 
Commission runs the Airport and not the airlines. 

She felt it essential to quickly obtain a clarification of Section 12B as 
to whose authority it is to enforce the Lease and Use Agreement in order 
for the Commission to act appropriately. The Commission is concerned that 
jobs of Bay Area people are protected. She wants to see action, within 
the Commission's jurisdiction, right away, and wants an end to 
buck-passing . 

Commissioner Fleishell said he spent two years fighting the airlines and 
negotiating for the City. The Agreement was not signed to give away the 
Airport, and, the airlines do not run the Airport. The Commission is 
legally pre-empted from doing what they would like to do but he hopes that 
with clarification, they will be able to move. 

Commissioner Coblentz felt that at at this point any resolution adopted by 
the Commission would be meaningless. 

He remarked that there are 32 Deputy City Attorneys, but every opinion 
comes out under the name of George Agnost. If each Deputy was approached 
for an opinion on this issue, you would get only one opinion. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if the Commission does not have the power to 
apply the prevailing wage law, can it enact such legislation, or is that 
something the Board of Supervisors must take care of. He asked for a 
response by the next meeting. 

If the Commission has the power to propose that type of legislation, 
Commissioner Coblentz is sure there would be unanimity on the Commission 
to do it, but they would also need the power of enforcement. 

Commissioner Coblentz, in response to an earlier comment, said the 
Commission does not have the power to raise the departure tax; that is 
preempted by the Federal government. They would do it, if they had the 
power. 

Commissioner Goosby agreed with Commissioner Coblentz' remarks and said he 
would be willing to vote for funds to hire outside counsel to assist the 
City Attorney in this. 

Commissioner Coblentz said he was absolutely opposed to hiring outside 
counsel. 

Commission Kadish asked if it were possible to get the answers to 
Commisson Coblentz' questions prior to the next meeting so that a special 
meeting could be set up. 

Commissioner Coblentz said he didn't think that was possible. 

Commissioner Kadish responded that people have lost their jobs and more 
are about to lose theirs. We are living in times of economic stress, and 
every week without a paycheck to people with families, cuts to the quick. 
Asking for an opinion in one week instead of two is responsive to people 
on a human level. 



Minutes, February 15, 1983, Page 11 



Commissioner Bernstein said Mr. Holober has copies of the Mayor's remarks 
and he hoped they all had a chance to read them. 

Commissioner Bernstein said the Commission, as well as staff, is 
thoroughly labor oriented, but that their powers were limited. 

The Commission will try to get an answer from the City Attorney within the 
next two weeks. 

Mr. Vic Thuesen asked that the Commission communicate to the City Attorney 
that what is needed is a game plan and that the City Attorney coordinate 
the Commission's responsibilities with that of the Mayor, Board of 
Supervisors, and the Human Rights Commission. 

If the City Attorney comes back with an opinion that the Commission cannot 
act, they would like the City Attorney to clearly identify those things 
that can be done. 

If a change in the City Charter is required, they will do it. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked Mr. Thuesen if he would accompany him to a 
meeting with the City Attorney. Conmissioner Bernstein said he would set 
up an appointment and call him. 

Mr. Thuesen said he would be happy to attend. 

Commissioner Bernstein remarked that there was no finer gentleman than Mr. 
Agnost. He is not in anyone's pocket; he fought the airlines for over two 
years with Commissioner Coblentz and Commissioner Fleishell, to achieve 
the first settlement where the City got some money. 

Commissioner Bernstein concluded by saying that the Commission would try 
to get an answer as soon as possible. He thanked the group for their 
orderly conduct.

ADOPTION OF MINUTES: 

The minutes of the regular meeting of November 2, 1982, were adopted by 
order of the Commission President. 

No. 83-0071 



DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

1. Medical Clinic- -Verbal Report 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, said this is a continuing item on 
calendar per Commission instructions, in anticipation of the March 15 
Commission meeting. It is his understanding that the Commission will 
then provide staff with direction on how to proceed with the medical 
clinic. 

The following item was put to the end of the calendar. 

2. Prevailing Wages — Verbal Report 

Mr. Turpen said the item was a carry-over from the last Commission 
meeting. It was placed on calendar to give the Commission President a 
chance to report on his activities as well as offering labor groups the 
opportunity to speak. 



Minutes, March 1, 1983, Page 1 



3. V.I. P. Room in Central Terminal — Verbal Report 

Mr. Turpen said there has long been a need for a centrally located 
facility for meetings and press conferences. The plans and 
specifications will be amended to accommodate a small room on the main 
floor of the Central Terminal for this purpose. Staff will provide the 
Commission with a schematic at a future date. 

The following item was put over. 

4. Passenger Information Service 

This report outlines the passenger 
information services currently provided at 
SFIA, as well as those planned for 
implementation in the near term and those 
comtemplated for possible implementation 
at some point in the future. 

Mr. Turpen said staff has provided the Commission with a list of the 
types of things being considered. After the report was generated, the 
State Department of Transportation approached the Airport with an 
opportunity for an informational computerized transportation kiosk. 
They developed it for Santa Clara County and are willing to let the 
Airport use it on a trial basis at a nominal cost. 

In view of the fact the Commissioners Coblentz and Goosby were absent, 
Mr. Turpen asked that the item be put over thus allowing staff the 
opportunity to further develop the report with additional information 
from Cal Trans. 

Commissioner Kadish noted that some of the signing on the supports for 
the upper level, outside the North Terminal are difficult to read. She 
would like it looked at and have a determination made us to how it can 
be improved. 

Commissioner Fleishell said the object of a passenger information 
system is to provide passengers with information on services. He feels 
that operating a computer to obtain this information is probably the 
last avenue that should be considered since, in all likelihood, most of 
the passengers in need of this type of assistance are probably 
non-English speaking people. He recommended looking into a 
multi-lingual publication and other more readily accessible means of 
disseminating information. 

Mr. Turpen responded that this was an opportunity for a very low cost 
system and the Commission might want to review it as opposed to looking 
at something that had to be generated from the ground up. 

Commissioner Kadish noted that there were all sorts of elaborate 
presentations but nothing relating to costs, or any concrete material 
from which a judgement could be made. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if staff was still looking at electronic 
foreign language boards. 

Mr. Ken Hammon, Deputy Director of Business and Finance, responded that 
staff has taken a look at the system planned for the San Jose Airport 
and that it looks like a good one. 

Commissioner Goosby asked that the item be placed on the trailing 
calendar. 



E. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

The following item was introduced by Commissioner Goosby and unanimously 
adopted . 

Minutes, March 1, 1983, Page 2 



Authorization for two staff members to attend a training session in Gshkosh, 
Wisconsin. 



No. 83-0072 



Commissioner Kadish asked Mr. Turpen if he received a response to his letter 
to the Art Commission regarding a deadline for receipt of materials, 
engineering drawings, and pertinent information necessary for installation 
of art works in the Central Terminal. 

Mr. Turpen replied that he had not received a response and planned to follow 
up with a phone call. 



Commissoner Kadish, referring to a letter sent to Commissioner Coblentz 
regarding New York Times pricing, said that at the time the Airport and the 
sub-contractor determined what the pricing would be, the New York Times was 
published in New York; now it is being published on the West Coast. 
Commissioner Kadish suggested a comparison in the cost to the supplier then 
and now. She felt a reduction in the price might be possible in order to 
bring it in line with the cost of that paper in San Francisco. 

Mr. Turpen responded that the pricing clause in the lease calls for an 
average and surveys are conducted on a repeated basis. The last survey 
indicated that our prices are in line with the average. He said another 
survey could be done. 



Conmissioner Fleishell introduced a resolution for the publication of a 
brochure for the opening of the Central Terminal. Staff has investigated 
four different firms to handle this. The prices range from $36,000 to 
$23,000, with the lowest bidder being Primo Angeli Graphics. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that it is in the Airports Commission Policies 
and Procedures that unless an item is a matter of safety or extreme urgency 
no resolution can be brought before the Commission and acted upon the same 
day. She recommended discussing the item with the understanding that it 
would be put over to the next meeting. 

Commissioner Kadish wanted to know to whom the publication would go; what 
would be the cost of printing; how will it be paid; and what purpose will it 
serve in light of the fact that on November 2, 1982, the Commission 
unanimously turned down a commemorative brochure for the opening of the 
Central Terminal. 

Commissioner Fleishell commented that since the item will be put over -to the 
next meeting, those questions can be responded to then. 



Commissioner Goosby wanted to know the status of a second location for the 
cookie counter. He also asked for the remainder of vacant concession sites 
in the North Terminal. 

Mr. Turpen responded that there was a wait and see attitude on a second 
location based upon the success of the first location. 

Mr. Turpen said he would get Commissioner Goosby a list of concessions not 
yet in place in the North Terminal. 

Commissioner Kadish asked for figures on the cookie counter.

F. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 
The following item was unanimously adopted: 

5. Design Review Approval 

Bank of America, North Terminal Automatic Teller 

No. 83-0073 Resolution approving schematic design of 

Automatic Teller Machine Kiosk of Bank of 
America in North Terminal Building 

The following item was put over: 

6. Concession Consultant 

Authorization to Issue Request for Proposals 

Resolution approving contract 
specifications for a Concession Consultant 
to the Airports Commission and authorizing 
Director to issue a formal Request for 
Proposals in an amount not to exceed 
$50,000. 

The following was unanimously adopted as amended: 

7. Airport Contract No. 1451 
Grease Trap at North Terminal 

No. 83-0074 Resolution approving the plans and 

specifications for Contract 1451, Grease 
Trap at North Terminal, and authorizing 
the Director of Airports to call for bids. 

Mr. Turpen explained that grease is getting into the sewer line, 
solidifying, blocking it and causing an overflow into the United 
Airlines baggage make-up area in the basement. 

Mr. Turpen said he will seek reimbursement from Host because he feels 
an inadequacy in the Host design has caused this problem. 

In the interest of the efficient operation of the Airport, he has 
directed staff to move ahead on this item. 

Mr. Turpen explained that Host has already been approached for 
reimbursement, but they are unwilling to commit to it. Host feels they 
have no direct involvement in this and indicated it might be the 
responsibility of their architect or a contractor. 

Commissioner Kadish felt if the Airport went ahead and paid for this 
without Host recognizing that they are part of the cause, we are 
essentially saying that the Airport will go to litigation. She did not 
feel this was the way to proceed. 

Mr. Turpen responded that it was his recommendation to proceed. The 
estimate is low so he suggested the resolution be adopted at a cost not 
to exceed $35,000. This could be tied up legally for an extended 
period of time and United Airlines is suffering a severe operational 
problem so it is important that the matter be physically resolved. 

The resolution can be amended to reflect the Commission's directive 
that staff immediately pursue reimbursement from Host to the maximum 
extent possible. 

Commissioner Fleishell commented that this has been pending for more 
than a year and that was far too long. He felt that the Commission 
should have a policy regarding negotiating. He hoped that Mr. 
Garibaldi has put Host on notice that the Airport intends to move ahead 
and then seek reimbursement. He recommended filing suit immediately. 

Commissioner Goosby moved that the amendment be added to the resolution. 
Minutes, March 1, 1983, Page 4

D. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: (Continued) 

2 Prevailing Wages - Verbal Agreement 

Comnissiner Bernstein said there has been some discussion with 
attorneys of the various unions involved and the Commission, and it was 
decided that a special meeting to discuss this issue will be held on 
Tuesday, March 8. 

Mr. Holober, Airport Labor Coalition, reminded the Commission that at 



Minutes, March 1, 1983, Page 5 



the last meeting, the Commission resolved to ask specific questions of 
the City Attorney. They were: (1) Can the existing prevailing wage 
ordinance be enforced at the Airport; and (2) if not, can the 
Commission draft legislation that would create a prevailing wage 
ordinance that would apply to the airlines and all of their 
subcontractors. The City Attorney was to respond to those questions by 
this meeting. 

Mr. Vic Thuesen, attorney for skycaps, attended a meeting with the City 
Attorney that addressed certain issues, but he does not understand why 
the City Attorney is not prepared to answer those questions that do not 
require any additional factual information. 

Commissioner Bernstein responded that he was present at that meeting 
and at that time Mr. Agnost asked Mr. Thuesen to submit further 
information. Mr. Thuesen agreed to do so. Based on that information, 
Commissioner Bernstein assumed, the City Attorney would render an 
opinion. The City Attorney has yet to receive that information. He 
said Mr. Agnost will have a response at Tuesday's special meeting. 

Mr. Holober made the formal request that the City Attoreny's office be 
removed from any further legal role in this matter and that outside 
counsel, experienced in labor relations and government operations, be 
employed by the Airport. He asked that counsel be empowered to draft 
legislation to resolve this situation. 

Commissioner Bernstein responded that the Commission could hire outside 
counsel with the consent of the City Attorney but that it did not have 
the power to remove him from this issue; that the City Attorney 
represents every City agency and department. 

Mr. Holober said Mr. Thuesen gave him a memo summarizing the meeting 
with the City Attorney. In his memo, Mr. Thuesen said Mr. Agnost 
explained that the present ordinance, Section 12B, is not applicable at 
the Airport and justified that comment by saying it was an 
anti-discrimination ordinance, and discrimination has not been alleged. 

Mr. Holober commented that in the case involving janitors, 
discrimination has been alleged. 

Regarding Mayor Feinstein's request to draft new legislation that would 
clear up loopholes in the existing law, Mr. Agnost responded that the 
Airport is located in San Mateo County and the laws of the City and 
County of San Francisco cannot be applied outside of San Francisco's 
city limits. He further explained that even if new legislation could 
be drafted, the Airport has just signed 30-year lease agreements with 
the airlines and until those agreements expire there will be no 
application of that ordinance to any of those airlines. 

Commissioner Bernstein requested a copy of Mr. Thuesen' s memo. 

Commissioner Goosby requested a summary of the meeting with the Mayor 
and the one with Mr. Agnost from the President of the Commission-. He 
recommended that a policy be established calling for notification and 
briefing of the Commission when an individual member attends a meeting 
on behalf of the Commission. 

Commissioner Fleishell corrected Mr. Holober 's statement on the Lease 
and Use Agreement saying that the agreement expressly provides that it 
is subject to the continued amendment to our rules at the Airport. It 
does not presuppose that what existed at the signing would persist for 
30 years. 

Steve Van Zant, President of local 1213, pleaded with the Commission to 
expedite the matter. 



Minutes, March 1, 1983, Page 6 



Commissioner Goosby said that he has always been under the impression 
that the Airport was under the jurisdiction of the City and County of 
San Francisco and now Mr. HDlober reports that Mr. Agnost has said this 
is not the case. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airports General Counsel, responded that he was not 
at that meeting and does not know what Mr. Agnost told them, however, 
Commission rules are applicable at the Airport. As to City ordinances, 
that is a question being researched by the City Attorney's office. 

Commissioner Kadish remembers a Commission policy calling for 
prevailing wages to be paid at the Airport. 

Mr. Garibaldi responded that the Commission adopted a resolution to 
that effect and that provision has been incorporated into every lease 
subsequent to the adoption of that resolution. It is not in the Lease 
and Use Agreement because the prevailing wage policy was adopted after 
the form of the Agreement. 

Commissioner Kadish remembers the prevailing wage policy going back at 
least four years. In any future leases and negotiations there has to 
be a base line understanding that the starting point is Commission 
policy. 

Commissioner Bernstein said the special meeting will be at 9:00 a.m., 
on Tuesday, March 8, place to be announced. 



H. COMMUNICATIONS: 

There were no items discussed by the Commission. 



I. TRAILING CALENDAR: 

There was no discussion of items on the Trailing Calendar. 



K. ADJOURNMENT TO GO INTO CLOSED SESSION: 

There being no further calendared business before the Commission, the 
meeting was adjourned at 3:50 p.m. to go into closed session.

D. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 

The following item was put over to the regular meeting of March 15, 1983. 



Minutes, March 8, 1983, Special Meeting, Page 1 



2. Central Terminal Brochures 

Commissioner Kadish said it was her understanding that the rules and 
regulations stated that only those items mentioned at the call of a 
special meeting could be discussed. She stated that this item had 
been put over to the next regular meeting. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airports General Counsel, responded that the 
notice that went out calling for a special meeting included this 
item. The rules state that both the call of the special meeting and 
notice for the meeting must indicate what items will be discussed. 

Mr. Garibaldi further commented that since the item had been put over 
to the March 15 meeting, he was concerned that someone could be 
misled. 

Commissioner Fleishell suggested that this item be put on the consent 
calendar for the next meeting. 

Commissioner Kadish said it was her understanding that the specs 
would be developed by whomever was hired and not by staff. There is 
no arrangement for anyone to write the text of the brochure. This is 
to be a 16-page, 8-1/2" x 11" brochure and there was only cost 
estimate for photography, photostats and miscellaneous charges. 
These things concerned her. 

She said that nothing had been developed by the Airport and no 
maximum figure was given. One proposal was presented by a firm and 
that proposal, without the firm's name on it, was sent to other 
firms. 

Commissioner Kadish also thought that independent contractors would 
be less expensive. 

Mr. Turpen remarked that the development of a brochure is an artistic 
endeavor and staff does not have the capabilities for this project. 
We have a $200,000 budget which includes all publications. With a 
$1.9 million budget and 69 people, Los Angeles comes to us to borrow 
our ideas on brochures. 

Mr. Turpen felt it important that professionals be retained to assist 
us. 

Mr. Turpen felt the item should be acted upon quickly, however, he 
recommended the item be put over in accordance with the wishes of 
members of the Commission. Staff has procrastinated up to this point 
because of a lack of in-house expertise. 

Commissioner Fleishell called for a vote. 

Commissioners Bernstein and Fleishell voted for approval and 
Commissioner Kadish voted against it. 

The item was put over to the regular meeting of March 15.

TUESDAY, MARCH 8, 1983 9:15 O'CLOCK A.M. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: The meeting of the San 
Francisco Airports Commission will please come to order. 

Would you please call the roll. 

MS. CARAMATTI: Commissioner Bernstein? 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Here. 

MS. CARAMATTI: Commissioner Coblentz? 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Here. 

MS. CARAMATTI: Commissioner Radish? 

COMMISSIONER RADISH: Here. 

MS. CARAMATTI: Commissioner Goosby? 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: Here. 

MS. CARAMATTI: Commissioner Fleishell? 

COMMISSIONER FLEISHELL: Here. 

MS. CARAMATTI: We have five present. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Mr. Agnost — 

MR. AGNOST: Mr. President. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: — would you give us your 
opinion on the question before the Commission. 

MR. AGNOST: Well, briefly stated, the opinion 
addresses the question of application of 12B, and it 
applies to all contracts, whether at the airport or 
elsewhere. 

The effect of 12B is to speak to discrimination in 



201 CALIFORNIA street HARRY A. CANNON, INC. telephone 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS - NOTARI ES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



employment practices. And where you do have discrimination 
in employment practices, then in order to correct that 
discrimination, the Human Rights Commission may require 
payment of prevailing wage scales. It may require payment 
of prevailing wage scales where it's under a program to 
defeat discrimination. But absent discrimination in 
employment, the Human Rights Commission cannot make a 
requirement paying prevailing wage scales. 

That would call for a new ordinance, which we have 
attached in form, which would apply to contractees with San 
Francisco within the city limits and outside the city 
limits, such as Hetch Metchy, water department properties, 
airport and health department properties. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Are there any questions — 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: Mr. Agnost, since the Airports 
Commission specifically has a policy provision -- 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Could you speak louder, Mr. 
Goosby. I can't hear you. 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: Since the Airports Commission 
has a specific policy provision that affects the airport 
as regards prevailing wages and fringe benefits, would 
that have the weight of law in the relationship of 
contractors with the Airports Commission, per se? 

MR. AGNOST: I don't know that the Airports 
Commission, Commissioner, has such a policy at this "present

time. 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: We have one. 

MR. AGNOST: Do you have it with respect to 
contracts? 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: Yes. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Direct contracts. 

MR. AGNOST: Direct contracts? 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: Right, with the airport. 

MR. AGNOST: Yes. 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: People who do business with 
the airport. 

MR. AGNOST: Who directly deal with the airport. 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: Right. 

MR. AGNOST: Yes, that's true, you have that, but we 
are talking about people who do business at the airport 
with whom you are not contracting directly. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: That's the difference between 
a concessionaire and then the airlines with whom we're not 
really contracting directly; is that correct? 

MR. AGNOST: The airlines are under lease with us. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Yes, yes. 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: But they, in turn, contract 
with people on their own. 

MR. AGNOST: Yes. 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: And you're saying that bur 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS • NOTARI ES 391-7421

policy doesn't necessarily cover the people that they 
contract with? 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: It will control our 
relationship with the airlines but not with people that 
they subcontract with. 

MR. AGNOST: Not at this point. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Ruth? 

COMMISSIONER KADISH: You mentioned about 
discrimination in relation to Section 12B. Would the 
subcontract under which only Korean janitors are employed 
be indeed an abridgement -- would that be an example of a 
discriminatory practice? 

MR. AGNOST: Well, let's address that. 

If in fact they are only employing Koreans, that, per 
se, is discriminatory, and that is before the HRC right 
now. I understand they are investigating. We don't have 
all the facts in. 

If they were discriminating, and because of that 
discrimination came under the jurisdiction of the HRC, 
the HRC could require them to engage in a program to 
correct discrimination and to pay prevailing wages. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: As I understand it, the 
airport has a right to enforce prevailing wages with 
regard to contracts directed to parties with whom they 
have contractual relations, but that's it. And if we want 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS ■ NOTARIES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



to stretch it any further, then it's incumbent on us to 
propose, which I would certainly do at this time, that 
this particular legislation then be passed by the Board of 
Supervisors. 

Our hands, other than that, are pretty well tied. 

MR. AGNOST: I would say at this point in time, 
where we deal directly with the contractor, you can 
require paying prevailing wage. Where we have a tenant, 
a concessionaire, we need the statute to establish the 
public policy in the City of San Francisco with respect to 
facilities that are outside its borders. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: That statute would be via 
the Board of Supervisors. 

MR. AGNOST: Yes. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ : But we have here a proposal, 
a piece of legislation which we would approve and then 
forward to the Board of Supervisors. 

MR. AGNOST: Hopefully, yes. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Yes. Thank you. 

COMMISSIONER KADISH: I would certainly move — 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Just a minute. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Do you want to add anything? 

COMMISSIONER FLEISHELL: I just want to make sure 
that it's the opinion of the City Attorney that there is 
nothing we as a commission can do under existing law at 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS • NOTARIES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



this very minute. There's nothing we can do dealing with 
this specific problem we're worrying about. 

MR. AGNOST: Well, I don't intend to foreclose all 
options of this Commission at this point in time without 
reference to a particular fact situation, but just let me 
say this: that if the Board were to adopt this statute and 
if the Commission were to adopt a policy pursuant to this 
statute, you could then correct inequities which presently 
are not being met. 

And I may also say further that the HRC has 
broadened the scope of its investigation and has yet to 
conclude its findings and its official action. It's 
conceivable that the HRC may still meet some of these 
problems . 

Just to be general, if, for example, you are bringing 
in just one racial group because you're paying them below 
prevailing wages and the HRC finds that in fact that's 
the case and that is discriminatory, it may then require 
that party to cease that discrimination as to future 
employment and to presently pay prevailing wages. That 
would cure some of these gross inequities. 

It would leave open the question, if there is a 
further investigation by the HRC, of where you have a 
minority work force and then you drop the wages on them 
because they are minorities, therefore they have no 'options 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS - NOTARI ES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



to go somewhere else, they have no options but to accept 
the wage drop, as to whether in fact that is a 
discriminatory employment practice. 

Now, that's what the HRC is for. That's what they 
are looking into. They are coming to our office for legal 
advice, and we propose to help them. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Thank you. 

Mr. Weinberg, is there anything you would like to 
say? 

MR. WEINBERG: Yes. Thank you. 

I wanted to address myself to the situation that 
involves the World Services, Inc. 

My name is Stewart Weinberg. I'm appearing on 
behalf of Service Employees Local 77 and the San Francisco 
Labor Council. 

Briefly, it is our contention that the facts which 
the Human Rights Commission are going to disclose or set 
forth are going to be that World Services, which is a 
contractor for janitorial services to Western Airlines, 
employes persons of Korean ancestry or nationality -- 
we're not exactly certain -- exclusively as janitors and 
that the situation has existed since November and this 
crew was brought in when World Services gained the 
contract, Allied Maintenance having had the contract 
before. 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS ■ NOTARIES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



10 



The Allied Maintenance contract was a racially mixed 
contract, and we understand that Western did what it did 
because it was experiencing some sort of a financial 
problem and sought to cure all of its international 
miseries by getting a new janitorial contractor at the San 
Francisco International Airport. 

The contract, as we understand it, between Western 
and World does indeed provide that 12B shall be honored, 
that is, prevailing rates and nondiscrimination. We've 
been to court already with Western Airlines and World 
Services to challenge this. 

However, Western Airlines has taken the position that 
until we exhaust our remedy with the Human Rights 
Commission, we can't go to a court to enforce 12B. 

The courts agreed and said, "Wait until the Human 
Rights Commission has done whatever it's going to do and 
then maybe you can ccme back, if you're still not 
satisfied . " 

But in that court proceeding, Western has taken the 
position that all it needs to do under law is include a 
clause in its lease or in its contract with World 
Services that World Services live up to 12B, and then it 
washes its hands of it and says, "We have no enforcement 
authority. It's none of our business if World Services 
chooses not to live up to the terms of its contract." 



20I CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS • NOTARIES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



11 



And we think that's where the Airports Commission 
comes in. In a very short while we'll have the 
conclusions of the Human Rights Commission, and if 
everything is as we expect it to be, they are going to 
find that this is a situation falling entirely within the 
City Attorney's opinion, that is, discrimination, because 
it is a lease which, as a result of which, provides for 
the employment of exclusively Korean nationals or persons 
of Korean ancestry and no others, and they are paying 
less than prevailing wages. 

Now, under those circumstances, since you don't 
have a contract with World Services, you have to enforce 
your lease with Western Airlines, because it is Western 
Airlines that is allowing the situation to exist by 
refusing to enforce the terms of its contract with World 
Services, and therefore, I believe that you have the 
authority and the power, under those circumstances, to 
tell Western either correct the situation or it is in 
breach of the lease provision. 

That's briefly our position. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ : You see, the question I have 
here, though, is you have to exhaust the administry of 
remedies -- at least that's what the court says — and you 
are exhausting your administry of remedies with the Human 
Rights Commission.

Don't we have to -- or isn't it premature or 
anticipatory to do anything until the Human Rights 
Commission has reached a decision? 

MR. WEINBERG: In all fairness, I agree. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ : In all fairness, you just 
have to do it, because they have to make a decision, 
because otherwise, we are making the decision, and the 
problem is that the Human Rights Commission has the prime 
authority. 

MR. WEINBERG: We have no argument with that. We 
thought that their decision would be out already. It 
isn't. And I think that — 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: But if there are contractual 
terms and the Human Rights Commission so rules, you have 
no problem as far as this Commission is concerned; we'll 
enforce the lease to the best of our ability. 

MR. WEINBERG: Thank you. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Mr. Holober. 

MR. HOLOBER: I have a couple of questions for Mr. 
Agnost through the Chair, if I may. Because if I 
understand it correctly, he's stating that the existing 
language does not apply to subcontractors of the airlines. 
I may be wrong, but that's what I heard a few minutes ago. 

The existing language is quite clear. It says that 
"any contract subject to this ordinance," which means any 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS • NOTARIES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



13 



contract that the City and County of San Francisco enters 
into with any private contractor, including those airlines, 
"shall require the contractor, subcontractor," which 
includes the janitorial firms; it includes the skycap 
firms, et cetera, "or supplier to provide not less than the 
prevailing wage, working conditions and practices generally 
observed in private industries in the City and County of 
San Francisco." 

Now, that language seems about as clear, crystal 
clear, as any language I've ever seen. It says quite 
specifically that those subcontractors of those airlines 
as of today, as of the writing of this ordinance, are 
required to pay prevailing wages. 

COMMISSION GOOSBY: What are you reading from? 

MR. HOLOBER: Well, I'm reading a quote from the 
City Attorney's opinion, but it is extracted from Chapter 
12B.2, subsection 5, I believe it is. 

And I guess I'm a bit confused, because that's about 
as clearcut a language as I've ever seen. That clearly 
incorporates all of the subcontractors that have any 
indirect relationship with the City and County of San 
Francisco by virtue of their contracting with a contractor 
such as Western Airlines or PSA or American Airlines. 

So I don't understand how his opinion would exclude 
those. I'd like some clarification.

MR. AGNOST: If I may. Thank you. 

I think it's quite obvious that that language 
addresses itself to when the City lets out a contract to 
do the City's business. Then the City fastens those 
requirements on the contractors and on the subs that do 
business with the contractors, et cetera. 

You don't have that situation when you are dealing 
with, for example, a concessionaire. The concessionaire 
is doing its own business. It's not doing the City's 
business . 

MR. HOLOBER: Yes. If I may again question through 
the Chair where the reference to doing the City's business 
is? Because the language in Chapter 12B, section 1, 
under the definition — let me read it, if I may. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ : Let me say this — excuse 
me. This is not a court. 

MR. HOLOBER: Yes. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: We're not going to decide the 
legal issues. We are the clients. This is our attorney. 

MR. HOLOBER: Yes. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: And I think that once you 
retain an attorney, you may disagree with him at times, 
but I think you have to listen to him, and unless you 
terminate the services of that attorney -- and I can tell 
you this from my personal experience — you stay with that

1 attorney. 

2 MR. HOLOBER: Sure. 

3 COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ : And I think we have an 

4 obligation here, and I've only read the opinion now, and 

5 I have such great respect for Mr. Agnost anyway, but 

6 regardless of the respect which I have for him, I think 

7 we've got to go along on this. 

8 Now, if you have disagreements with Mr. Agnost, you 

9 don't have to go through the Chair to talk to him. I 

10 think it behooves you, because I assume you just got the 

11 opinion, to sit down with Mr. Agnost or representatives of 

12 his office and perhaps refine it, and maybe, if there are 

13 errors, they can see the errors of their ways. 

14 But until that, this Commission, and I think I 

15 speak for the Commission, is not going to intervene in 

16 that particular opinion. 

17 MR. HOLOBER: If I may respond to that: this is the 

18 first opportunity that I've had and that some of the 

19 unions involved have had to speak to Mr. Agnost and to get 

20 answers to these questions, and I'm not here to argue, 

21 but I'm here to understand the reasoning behind some of 

22 the opinions, especially when I see language that seems 

23 clear. 

24 And I've got a simple question that if I could have 

25 it clarified to my satisfaction and if I'm satisfied, then 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE

I'll drop my objection. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: I'm certain, if there's 
any point, Mr. Agnost or his deputies who formulated the 
opinion would be delighted to sit down with you — I 
don't know if they would be delighted, but they'll sit 
down with you to discuss it. 

Mr. Coblentz is exactly right: we are not a court of 
law and there's no way for us to make a decision on a 
legal question or interpretation, I don't think. 

MR. HOLOBER: If I may, see, here's my concern: On 
the one hand, I'm pleased to see that the City and the 
City Attorney is drafting some legislation, some language 
-- I haven't read it, but assuming that it takes care of 
the problems we have, that's wonderful. 

But my question is, we've got, as you know, about 
400 workers who have already been thrown out into the 
street or who have already had their wages and benefits 
slashed, and my concern is that they get some relief. 

And if new legislation is being drafted, I would 
assume that's prospective legislation and would not be 
retroactive, and therefore, all of the people who have 
spoken at this Commission about their plight will be left 
out in the cold when there is existing language which 
seems to be adequate. 

I'm a little reluctant to yield that language and 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS - NOTARI ES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



17 



adopt new language when 400 some odd people are going to 
be thrown out in the street and left without any recourse. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ : But speaking for the two 
attorneys here anyway, you are asking us to be a court of 
law. I mean I have just gotten the opinion now, but even 
if I had it two days ago, you're asking us to say, in 
our opinion, from your interpretation, the City Attorney 
is wrong. And I can't do that. 

MR. HOLOBER: I'm just asking — I would like to 
know -- 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: That's what you are really -- 
you are asking for a clarification, but in the end, that's 
what you are asking us to do. 

Because we fully realize the plight of these 400 
workers, but with that damage being poured over their 
heads, you are asking us to say, "The City Attorney is 
wrong. You should do something because the legislation is 
prospective . " 

MR. HOLOBER: I'm simply asking the Ctiy Attorney to 
explain why he interprets this language, the existing 
language, to exclude the airlines and their tenants, 
because there is no reference in this language to agencies 
or contractors doing the City's work. It's quite clear in 
this language that it includes any contracts, franchises, 
leases, concessions or other agreements involving real or 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE

personal property let, awarded, granted, renegotiated — 
I mean, it goes on and on. There's no reference to doing 
the City's work. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: I — 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ : Let me say this — excuse 
me, Mr. Bernstein. That Mr. Agnost replied — 

MR. AGNOST: Look at page 4, the quote there. It 
says, "This chapter shall," skipping words in between -- 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: George, we can't hear you. 

MR. AGNOST: Pardon me. 

On page 4, the second quote, quoting from section 
12B.5: "This chapter shall," skipping language in between, 
"have application only to discriminatory employment 
practices by contractors, subcontractors or suppliers 
engaged in the performance of City contracts." 

"In the performance of City contracts." That's not 
a concession. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Mr. Thuesen, would you like 
to be heard? 

MR. THUESEN: Well, I've got a number of comments. 
I'll make them as short as I can. 

I would like to have the answers to some questions 
myself. The first question I would like to ask, if and 
when the Human Rights Commission makes a determination, 
is that determination — whether it disagrees with the 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS - NOTARI ES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



19 



City Attorney or not — binding upon this Commission and 
other City agencies? 

If I can have that question answered by the City 
Attorney, then I'll complete my remarks. 

MR. AGNOST: All right. I'll give you a very direct 
answer . 

If, in the opinion of the City Attorney's Office, 
the HRC has made a legally justifiable finding and it's 
binding on the City, then it's binding on all City 
departments. If it's not, then it's not binding on all 
City departments. 

MR. THUESEN: I raise that question because the 
Human Rights Commission has -- 

By the way, by way of introduction, my name is Vic 
Thuesen. I represent the Brotherhood of Railway & 
Airline Clerks, and they represent the skycaps at the 
airport . 

There's been some confusion, by the way, as to who 
represents whom, and I think the record should be clear as 
to that fact, at least. 

In any event, in May of 1982 the events that 
surround the skycaps initially came into being, and on May 
4 of 1982 the skycaps at the airport were literally 
stripped of every single employment benefit that they had 
managed to negotiate over a 19-year history.

We filed a complaint with the Human Rights 
Commission, a complaint called a Complaint of 
Noncompliance. I call that to your attention because the 
Human Rights Commission, which is the body that 
administers Chapter 12B of the Administrative Code, has 
two forms of complaint. The first form is a complaint 
alleging discriminatory practices, and the second form is 
a complaint that simply alleges noncompliance with the 
terms of Chapter 12B. 

We went to the Human Rights Commission and sought 
advice as to how we should file our claim. 

The skycaps, as you may know or not know, consist 
of 74 black workers, 3 Hispanic workers and no workers of 
any other ethnic extraction. They are, by any legal 
definition, minorities, protected minorities, and subject 
to all the protections of our various civil rights 
legislation. 

We were advised by the Human Rights Commission to 
file a Complaint of Noncompliance, and the Complaint of 
Noncompliance, we were advised, was to direct itself to 
Chapter 12B.4. 

We filed the complaint, and after a number of 
meetings, were subjected to a finding by the director of 
the Human Rights Commission based upon an opinion from 
the City Attorney's Office that didn't even remotely 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS - NOTARI ES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



21 



direct itself to what you are hearing today or direct 
itself to the document that you have before you. 

That finding said, "We don't reach the issue of 
whether prevailing rate of pay is being paid to skycaps 
or not, because we don't have to. Number one, Allied 
Maintenance Service is not a subcontractor within the 
meaning of Chapter 12B, and number two, they are a direct 
contractor with the Airports Commission, but we don't 
reach the issue of whether prevailing rate is paid because 
the entire field is preempted by federal law." 

These issues that are being raised today are yet 
another issue. 

We have appealed and requested a show cause hearing 
before the Human Rights Commission as to the rulings they 
have made to this point, but what I'm beginning to think 
is that even should we prevail on those two findings, 
the City Attorney will direct that the ordinance not be 
enforced for the reasons that are brought to your 
attention today. 

And I raise those with you to suggest that, as I 
have with the chairperson of the Commission, that we've 
been to nearly every City agency that we know of to 
attempt to get some sort of redress. But if we are going 
to go through a hearing before the Human Rights 
Commission on issues that are not relevant, we'd like to 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS • NOTARI ES 391-7421

REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



22 



know that now so that when we go and when we appeal that 
finding to the Human Rights director, we appeal it on the 
grounds that the City Attorney would find to be 
appropriate . 

So it's for that reason that I raise the initial 
question that I raise with you today. 

I'd like to leave with the Commission considering 
one other avenue of approach. As you'll recall, I came 
before this Commission in June of last year requesting 
that you enforce your own prevailing wage ordinance or 
resolution, and it was determined at that time that this 
body would not enforce it because there was a remedy, as 
I understood it, before the Human Rights Commission. 

We now appear, at least for the moment, to have 
exhausted that remedy, and I would ask once again that 
this Commission either enforce its own or amend your 
current resolution and provide advice to every airline at 
that airport that you won't tolerate the practices that 
are now going on and demand that they roll back the 
activities that they've engaged in, in exchange for the 
right to continue in a contractual relationship with you. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Jack, I save you for last, 
Jack, because you usually have the last word. 

MR. CROWLEY: Mr. Chairman and members of the 
Commission, I'm Jack Crowley, secretary of the San

Francisco Labor Council. 

I'm not here to practice American plan law because 
I don't have the credentials. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Jack, can you talk a little 
louder? There's mimeograph machines. 

Why don't you give him the microphone. 

COMMISSIONER KADISH: The microphone. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: We've got a mimeograph 
machine back there. 

MR. CROWLEY: Oh, all right. 

Is that better? 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: I don't think it's on. 

MR. CROWLEY: I feel like Sammy Davis now on the 
stage . 

However, I think there has to be an immediate 
solution to this by the Commission, and we do agree -- I'm 
speaking for the Labor Council -- insofar as the amendment 
to the Administrative Code to clarify just exactly what 
we're talking about, as the City Attorney has produced 
here today. 

But I think immediate redress has to be done by the 
Commission in order to restore some order and design at 
airport for those workers that are suffering this 
unconscionable kind of activity by the airlines, and I 
believe that it should be done immediately, and I think

1 you have it within your power to do so despite -- 

2 Bill, can I have your attention? 

3 COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Excuse me for just one 

4 minute. Excuse me. 

5 [Commissioners Coblentz and Bernstein conferred.] 

6 COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Excuse me, I'm sorry. 

7 MR. CROWLEY: I don't like concurrent meetings going 

8 on when I'm having one. 

9 COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: No. You're perfectly right. 

10 MR. CROWLEY: However, I think that what we should 

11 do and what the Commission should do is immediately 

12 address itself to an immediate answer for the people who 

13 have been relieved out there and, as the Australians 

14 called it, sacked at Qantas Airlines and the others who 

15 have been reduced to less than -- to minimum wage and 

16 denial of their collective bargaining agreement with Local 

17 77, and the others affected out there. 

18 And I believe that you can do this within your 

19 power and without any cause for the City Attorney. 

20 We do agree with the City Attorney insofar as moving 

21 ahead, as I say, with the amendment to the Administrative 

22 Code, and we'll buy that. But immediately I think you 

23 have to address this question, and unless the 

24 Administrative Code can be amended within the next week 

25 or so to reinforce your actions, I think you better do

1 it yourselves. 

2 And I appreciate the opportunity of talking to you 

3 and giving you our point of view. 

4 COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Thank you, Jack. 

5 COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: Is this thinking clear then, 

6 Mr. President, that since the Human Rights Commission on 
the skycap issue has ruled that they cannot do anything 

8 under 12B for the reasons so stated, that the skycaps 

9 have exhausted their remedies by going to the HRC ; 
therefore, that it comes back to the Commission to say, 
"Well, if they've exhausted their remedy and the HRC 
cannot rule on this case because it doesn't fall within 
their jurisdiction, according to the City Attorney, then 

14 our policy provision concerning prevailing wages then has 

15 merit"? 
16

In other words, can we in fact then, since this 
remedy has been exhausted, rule, or are we limited because 
the skycap company, the people who are providing that 
service, are contracting with the airlines to handle their 
baggage? And is George's opinion such that, by 
definition, it is not City business, per se, and so, 
therefore, it does not come under our jurisdiction; in 
other words, that would be business with the airlines? 

MR. AGNOST: Commissioner, if I may clarify a 
point, the HRC has a request for rehearing, so the matter 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS - NOTARIES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



26 



is not disposed of by the HRC, and until it is, I think 
it would premature for us to act, absent a final 
determination by the HRC, on what the situation is. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: A request by Mr. Fine. 

MR. FINE: Thank you. 

My name is Fine. I'm an attorney representing 
Western Airlines. 

I just have three or four points to make before this 
Commission. 

One is that Western Airlines has not even yet 
answered the complaint that is presently before the Human 
Rights Commission, and an answer is due in eight days. 

We presumably will put together a complete answer, 
and the matter will be investigated by the Human Rights 
Commission. That commission is charged with the 
investigation of employment discrimination. 

This Airports Commission has heard today an 
allegation from one group that in some way World, which is 
a subcontractor, apparently, of Western Airlines, has a 
work force mostly Korean, and somehow they would like the 
allegation made that that's discriminatory. 

Ten minutes later you heard another representative 
from a labor organization suggest that his 73 black 
employees and 3 Hispanics, those are protected minorities. 

These are very difficult questions, as to wha't is 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITION S - NOTARI ES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



27 



an employment discrimination practice. Those are going 
to be exhausted, hopefully, before the Human Rights 
Commission . 

I think this Airports Commission is hardly ready to 
dive into that subject as to who is engaging in an 
employment discriminatory practice. That would be dealt 
with with the Human Rights Commission and they make 
findings and we'll deal with those findings. 

There are a lot of unanswered allegations that I've 
heard up to now, and we're not going to answer those right 
now. We're going to deal with them with the agency that 
is charged with that responsibility. But you have heard 
only a one-sided, a terribly one-sided view of this 
matter heretofore. We'll give our complete response to 
the Human Rights Commission, and if it's necessary that 
that matter then come before this Commission later on, 
you'll have more information from the employers, the 
airline employers that may be involved. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Mr. Tarumi . 

MR. TURPEN: Could you spell your name, please. 

MR. TARUMI: Hiroshi, H-i-r-o-s-h-i , T-a-r-u-m-i. 

MR. TURPEN: Thank you. 

MR. TARUMI: About three weeks ago I talked with you 
people, and then I just came back from the negotiation 
with Japan Airlines in New York. The Japan Airlines has 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS • NOTARIES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



28 



withdrawn their package offer and they are giving us a 
"contracting out or else" type of negotiation. 

They are talking about terminating 71 workers in San 
Francisco, Japan Airlines; they are talking about 
approximately 70 workers in Honolulu and -- 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: What kind of workers? 

MR. TARUMI: Ramp service, plant mechanics, aircraft 
mechanics and storekeepers. 

This is exactly the way the Qantas Airways people 
went. I think the -- I do not know the hocus-pocus of the 
lawyers and stuff like that. I do not understand that. 
But I ' m sure there is something wrong here, because we had 
this job for approximately 20 years. Then for a company 
to come in and say, "We're not going to negotiate with you 
no more. We're going to get rid of you guys, because I 
can get it cheaper people to work for you," there is 
something wrong here. There is something wrong. 

So in that direction, I would like for you to pay 
your attention to that. Like I say, I'm not — I don't 
understand about the discrimination. Stuff like this I 
do not understand. But then -- 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: How many flights does Japan 
Airlines have coming into the City? 

MR. TARUMI: There is two passenger flights and 
approximately eight cargo flights in a week, nighttime, 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS - NOTARI ES 391-7421 

LITIGATION SUPPORT SYSTEMS 
REFERENCING BY COMPUTER 



29 



so there is a lot of work to do. 

But then for a company to take an approach that say 
that we don't need you anymore because we can get a 
cheaper labor, and negotiate or don't negotiate in that 
way, it's not right. 

If you talk about discrimination, I think there is 
discrimination against union people that works at the 
airport. I'm not talking about blacks or yellows or 
whites, I don't think. We're talking about discrimination 
against union people at the airport. 

Thank you. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Anything further? 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: Is that all the speakers? 

COMMISSIONER KADISH: I would like to move that the 
ordinance -- 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Just a moment, just a 
moment . 

MR. THUESEN: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to 
interrupt. I did want to make one additional point that 
should be made . 

We have never raised the condition or never even 
raised the issue that the hiring of union labor should be 
a condition to any ordinance. We have carefully avoided 
that issue, in fact, and I note that the City Attorney 
has directed at least a large part of his remarks to that. 



201 CALIFORNIA STREET HARRY A. CANNON, INC. TELEPHONE 

SAN FRANCISCO DEPOSITIONS - NOTARI ES 391-7421

30 



We're content with an enforcible provision such as 
we've spoken of, and we'll take care of the union aspect 
of it, but we think enforcement of the ordinance is what's 
necessary . 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Ruth, do you want to be 
heard? 

COMMISSIONER KADISH: Yes. 

I would like to move that the ordinance which the 
City Attorney has provided us -- to recommend it be 
carried through the appropriate steps in order to get it 
enacted, with the recognition that we have just received 
today, and would appreciate that the Commission be able to 
have some input, should there be any changes that they 
deem necessary. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Second? 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: I second it. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ : I second it. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: Any comment? 

COMMISSIONER FLEISHELL: I assume Mrs. Kadish is 
indicating we won't enforce the rule that it wasn't on our 
agenda for two weeks . 

COMMISSIONER KADISH: Pardon me? 

COMMISSIONER FLEISHELL: We won't enforce the rule 
on this occasion that it wasn't on our agenda for two 
weeks .

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: I can't hear you.

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: We'll get it out today. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: No, no. 

MR. CROWLEY: It will have to be assigned to

important that this amendment be made as quickly as 
possible . 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: It will accompany our approval 
with the statement from our president that the greatest 
speed be given to the passage of this and so forth. 

COMMISSIONER FLIESHELL: I think we should move it 
out today . 

I also note on the covering letter this was already 
requested by the clerk of the Board, so he's expecting it, 
I think. 

Is that true? 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Jack, the practical matter, 
you know if we sent it over today, I guess it goes - to the

Board on Monday. 

MR. CROWLEY: Right. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ : And it's referred out by the 
Board to committee. 

Now, whether it will be heard by whatever 
appropriate committee when it meets — is that next week? 
I don't know. 

MR. CROWLEY: That's a determination by the Board. 

COMMISSIONER COBLENTZ: Yes. It will be over there 
in time, so it will be heard by the Board and put on the 
agenda for its Monday meeting. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: To be certain it gets 
there, I'll carry it there myself. 

Generally it takes four —

MS. CARAMATTI : Commissioner Goosby? 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: Yes. 

MS. CARAMATTI: Commissioner Fleishell? 

COMMISSIONER FLEISHELL: Yes. 

MS. CARAMATTI: We have five ayes. 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: All right. It will be done 
expeditiously . 

COMMISSIONER GOOSBY: It ffiems that we have a 
problem of those airlines who come in here with a few 
flights a day or a week. 

It might be that there will have to be discussions 
between the Commission representative, who would be our 
director, and the airlines to try to develop some 
procedure, or maybe the airlines can deal with the skycap 
service and hire a team who will service all of their 
airlines for their baggage and ramp operations rather than 
fire a group of people because they don't have quite 
enough work for them to do eight hours a day, whereas if 
this group of people could service a group of airlines, 
there could be stability given to the lives of the 
workers involved as well as economical operations for the 
airlines . 

Nobody is asking for people to featherbed an 
operation like the railroads years ago, but I think that 
it behooves us to see if we can't encourage such thinking

on the part of the airlines; or if they refuse to do it, 
what options does the Commission have itself to alleviate 
this problem. 

Because I can see -- even with these opinions aside, 
I can see where an airline will say, "We only have" -- 
Qantas's argument is that "we only have one airline 
coming in here a day; we don't need an eight-hour shift 
of men, paying them the fringe benefits, et cetera." 

Well, maybe if we combine this with Japan Airlines, 
we combine it with Chinese, Korean and Singapore and so 
forth or even some of the local domestic flights, that 
there might be -- and I think that's enlightened reasoning 
on their part. They should look at it this way. 

And certainly we should encourage this approach and 
not just let them say, "Well, there's nothing we can do 
because the opinion is such that we don't have 
jurisdiction. " 

You know, I think it is antiquated for them to look 
at this from that standpoint. 

I move the -- 

COMMISSIONER BERNSTEIN: That resolves that. Is 
there anything else? 

COMMISSIONER l'LEISHELL: Not for this. We do have 
a closed session. There is another item. We should go 
into closed session for this.

Commissioner J. Edward Fleishell 



C. ANNOUNCEMENT BY SECRETARY: 



In accordance with Section 54957.1 of 
the Brown Act, Jean Caramatti, 
Commission Secretary, announced the 
unanimous adoption of resolution No. 
83-0078 authorizing settlement of 
litigated claim; and 83-0079 
authorizing the Director to retain 
Morrison & Foerster to handle certain 
anti-trust litigations. 



D. ADOPTION OF MINUTES: 

The minutes of the regular meeting of November 16, 1982, were adopted by 
order of the Commission Vice President. 

No. 83-0081 



Minutes, March 15, 1983, Page 1 



E. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

1. Status of South Terminal News, Gifts and Duty Free/In-Bond leases 
During M & R Construction 

Report detailing the leasehold status 
of the three main South Terminal 
concessions during the Modernization 
and Replacement Program in the South 
Terminal. 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, said remodeling will begin in the 
South Terminal shortly after the international carriers are 
relocated. Staff recommends that the concessions in the South 
Terminal, Dobbs House, Duty Free Gifts and Duty Free In-Bond 
Merchandise, be carried on a month-to-month basis due to 
construction and relocation. The concessions have agreed to being 
carried on a month-to-month basis, with the exception of Dobbs 
House who has opted not to continue. They will be replaced by 
Aeroplex . 

Mr. Turpen felt this is a wise way to handle the situation and 
asked the Commission for a reaction. 

Commissioner Kadish wondered if Aeroplex could just move in and 
take over since this was originally a bid item. She asked if it 
shouldn't be re-bid or if it could be handled on a permit basis. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi responded that the existing lease would be 
terminated by mutual consent and a permit will be issued to 
Aeroplex because of the short period of time involved. 



AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 

Item No. 2 was placed at the end of the calendar. 

The following item was unanimously adopted as amended. 

3. Central Terminal Brochures 

No. 83-0083 The publication of a commemorative 

brochure, invitations and promotional 
posters for the Grand Opening of the 
new International Terminal in July, 
1983. 

Mr. Turpen explained that this item deals with the development of a 
general information brochure initially, focusing on the Central 
Terminal, but designed to be expanded to include the North and 
South Terminals and other aspects of the Airport. 

Staff feels it is important to develop a brochure that is 
representative of the Airport and recommends adoption. The opening 
of the Central Terminal would be an ideal starting point. 

Traditionally, airports generate many different types of brochures, 
each dealing with a particular subject, but it is Mr. Turpen's 
feeling that a single brochure, encompassing all facets of the 
Airport, might be something in which the Commission might be 
interested. 

Also included in the resolution is the concept of promotional 
posters to advertise the opening of the Central Terminal and 



Minutes, March 15, 1983, Page 2 



the contracting for invitations for the Central Terminal opening 
ceremony . 

Mr. Turpen told the Commission that he has put together a task 
force, consisting of staff and expanding to include major airport 
tenants, to arrange an opening ceremony for the Central Terminal. 

Commissioner Kadish noted that the Primo Angeli contract did not 
include any cost for photography, nor is there any provision for 
printing; that both these costs would have to be borne by the 
Airport. Commissioner Kadish requested a resolve be added to the 
resolution calling for a cap of $40,000 for total expenditures to 
include design and printing of posters, invitations and brochures 
and any other incidental fees, such as photography. 

Mr. Ron Wilson, Director of Community Affairs, thought that was a 
fair recommendation. 

The following items were unanimously adopted. 

4. Resolutions Approving Contract Modifications to: 

No. 83-0084 1. Contract 1220, Terminal Connectors 

$325,707 

No. 83-0085 2. Contract 1200B(3), Boarding Area D 

$179,722 
No. 83-0086 3. Contract 1200B(4), Central Terminal

by airlines, fuel service contractor, 
and Art Commission. Costs to be 
reimbursed by party requesting work. 
(B) Work required to correct unforeseen 
conditions in existing building. (C) 
Additions and revisions attributable to 
architect's errors and omissions. 

Resolutions also request City Attorney 
to prepare claim against architect for 
extra costs incurred due to errors and 
omissions. 

5. Resolution approving Budget of $95,000 for the Construction of a 
V.I. P. Room including furniture in the Central Terminal. 
Resolution also approves preliminary design and authorizes the 
preparation of construction documents and bid call. 

No. 83-0087 

The following items were put over. 

6. Professional Services

9. Professional Services

Resolution authorizing a contract 
modification for services as Financial

Mr. Turpen said Mr. Paul Van Wert, .Chairman of the Airline Affairs 
Committee, indicated that neither he nor members of that Committee 
had an opportunity to review these items and requested they be put 
over to the April 5 meeting. 

Mr. Turpen recommended Mr. Van Wert's request be granted. 

H. CONSENT CALENDAR OF ROUTINE ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS: 

The following item was unanimously adopted. 

10. Foreign Currency Exchange Concession, Central Terminal — Approval of 
Design Review 

No. 83-0088 Resolution approving Citicorp's 

schematic design of three Central 
Terminal foreign currency exchange 
locations. 

The following items were accepted as reports. 

11. 1982 Annual Traffic Accident Report. 

The 1982 Annual Traffic Accident Report 
showed the lowest accident rate (2.8 
accidents per 100,000 enplaning 
passengers) at SFIA since record 
keeping began in 1973. 

Commissioner Kadish asked if the Airport was any closer to the 
possible consolidation of rent-a-cars. 

Mr. Turpen said he has been talking with the rent-a-cars about 
consolidation, recognizing that the volume of activity is a burden 
on the Airport roadway system. There have been discussions 
regarding potential sites in the west of Bayshore area but they may 
not be available to the City and County of San Francisco. 

Recently, on Airport sites, east of Bayshore, have been looked at. 
There is reason to believe that some property may be made available 
to the Airport for consolidation of rent-a-car companies. This 
should significantly reduce congestion. 

Commissioner Kadish asked if the buses could be jointly used. 



Minutes, March 15, 1983, Page 4 



Mr. Turpen commented that the operating agreement with the 
rent-a-cars comes to an end early in 1984. In the next few months, 
staff will develop the bid specifications to renew that agreement. 
He said a consolidation of the buses would be a condition of the 
specifications. 

Commissioner Kadish commended staff and the Police Department on 
the decrease in the number of accidents. 

Mr. Turpen commented that a special thank you should go to the 
Landside operation under Sheldon Fein; they have done an excellent 
job of identifying problems and correcting them. 

12. Progress Report on the Booth Allocation in Central Terminal for 
Traveler's Aide and Free Speech. 

The following items were unanimously adopted. 

13. Arizona State University Aircraft Crash and Mass Casualty 
Management Seminar, April 10-15, 1983. 

No. 83-0089 Consideration for Clayton S. Scott, 

Airport Emergency Coordinator, to 
attend the Arizona State University 
Aircraft Crash and Mass Casualty 
Management Seminar in Tempe, Arizona, 
April 10-15, 1983. 

Total costs are estimated at $1,300. 

14. Resolution Approving Participation in the California Airports 
Commission Association. 

No. 83-0090 



COMMUNICATIONS: 

Commissioner Goosby asked Mr. Turpen for an explanation of how and why 
the changes in the Airport organizational chart were made. 

Mr. Turpen said he would be happy to review this with the Commission at 
the next meeting. 



Commissioner Goosby also asked that the adoption of the policy manual be 
placed on the trailing calendar. 

Commissioner Kadish said staff should develop a system for adding 
policies to the manual as they are adopted by the Commission. 



Commissioner Goosby commented that one of the recommendations coming 
before the Commission was for a consultant for concession space 
utilization but there was no substantiation or basis for recommendation. 



Minutes, March 15, 1983, Page 5 



Commissioner Kadish commended the Airport on the fact that the FAA will 
be using the Airports MBE and WBE sub-leasing as a model for other 
airports in the Lhited States. She also commended the Airport for being 
the only City department lauded by the Human Rights Commission for its 
MBE and WBE contracts. 

Commissioner Goosby suggested a press release be issued. 



G. AGENDA ITEMS INWLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS (Continued) 

The following item was adopted by a 3-1 vote with Commissioner Goosby 
casting the dissenting vote. 

2. Selection of Course of Action — Airport Medical Clinic 

No. 83-0082 Report outlining alternative course of 

action regarding the Airport medical 
clinic with appropriate resolutions. 

Mr. Turpen told the Commission that staff feels there are two 
alternatives with respect to an Airport Medical Clinic. The 
options, as outlined in the Commission package, are: 1) to 
continue the existing contract at new location, and, 2) a 
professional services agreement and a solicitation of proposals 
from various persons for the operation of an Airport medical clinic. 

Staff is awaiting Commission direction on how to proceed in this 
matter . 

Dr. L. A. Smookler, Director, Airport Medical Clinic, declined an 
invitation to speak before the Commission. 

Commissioner Kadish moved the resolution which would extend the 
contract for 4-1/2 years. 

Mr. Turpen said the new location would be adjacent to tne existing 
one to ensure a continuity in operation. Tne new location would be 
built by the Airport and the existing location would be made 
available for concession development. 

Mr. Turpen feels it is only fair that the Airport pick up the cost 
for the new location due to the short term of the extension. 

Commissioner Goosby said he cannot approve this when there are five 
other groups who have not been approached and given the opportunity 
to explain what they can do for the Airport with regard to a 
medical clinic. 

Commissioner Goosby reminded the Commission that aside from 
providing medical services to accident victims, the medical clinic 
is a private practice. 

He felt that if the differences between the other five groups and 
the current operation were minor, he might be inclined to maintain 
the current operation given their experience background and 
excellent record. However, that information was never taken. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked if there was a time problem. 



Minutes, March 15, 1983, Page 6 



Mr. Turpen replied that if this date was not met it would be 
difficult to make a smooth transition at the end of the year and we 
might have to discuss another extension. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that Commissioner Goosby's point was 
well taken. However, since that information did not exist, she 
made the motion to extend the contract. 



J. TRAILING CALENDAR: 

There was no discussion of items on the Trailing Calendar, 



K. ADJOURNMENT TO GO INTO CLOSED SESSION: 

There being no further calendared business before the Commission, the 
meeting was adjourned at 2:40 p.m. to go into closed session.

E. SPECIAL ITEM: 

1. Computerized Ground Transportation Information Demonstration Project. 

This report introduces a five-minute 
presentation by Gary Anderson of Forum 
Communications, Inc., and CalTrans, 
Division of Aeronautics, explaining how 
a Computerized Ground Transportation 
Information System would operate at San 
Francisco International Airport. 

Mr. Turpen, Airport Director, said members of CalTrans and Forum 
Communications in Seattle were present to give the Commission a brief 
overview. 

Mr. Gary Anderson of Forum Communications explained that the system 
is designed to increase the use of scheduled carrier service from the 
Airport. He said the system has three electronic component areas. 
The first is a changeable headline display indicating the next 
departure of major carriers from the Airport. The second is a 
reference display which allows the passenger to punch -up a 
destination and receive a print-out offering methods of reaching the 
destination. The third is a TV monitor and print out. The monitor 
displays the passenger's current location, the destination, the 
transit service carriers and how close they take the passenger to the 
destination, the costs and approximate travel time. 

Mr. Anderson explained that the system could be multi-lingual and 
expanded to include airline arrivals and departures. 

Commissioner Kadish asked how many systems would be necessary and how 
lines would be avoided. 

Mr. Anderson responded that there would be three locations and the 
average time for receiving information is 30 seconds. 

Mr. Jonathan Jerden, President of Airport Information Systems, Inc., 
said the system that is eventually installed should be of world-class 
standard in its design and installation, as well as operation and 
maintenance. It should be revenue producing for the firm that 
installs, operates and maintains the system as well as for the 
Airport. Mr. Jerden felt that instead of half-a-dozen screens, the 
Airport should have 60-80 screens to adequately serve its passengers. 

Mr. Robert Hyer, Vice President and Director of Marketing and 
Research for Airport Information Systems, Inc., explained the 
necessity of advanced video technology in the design in order to 
quickly provide up-to-the-minute information. 



Minutes, April 5, 1983, Page 2 



Commissioner Coblentz remarked that it might be a good idea to have 
staff examine this. He also suggested that staff investigate other 
systems that might be available and look into their revenue 
capabilities and scope of information. 

Commissioner Kadish asked if this system would take care of San 
Francisco's needs and suggested that staff find out what San Jose's 
experience was. 

Mr. Anderson told the Commission that once the system was in effect 
satellite locations could be installed, driven by the same basic 
hardware system. 

Mr. Anderson said the overall cost of the console is in excess of 
$300,000 and that San Francisco Interntional would be the first 
airport to have such a system installed. 

Commissioner Goosby wondered if the system might be too complicated 
and thus avoided by passengers. 

Mr. Turpen said he wanted the Commission to see this demonstration 
and asked that staff be given the opportunity to develop more detail 
and get back to them with a follow up report. 



F. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

2. North Terminal Concession Program - Update 

Report outlining status of existing 
concessions and recommendations for 
further development. 

Mr. Turpen listed those North Terminal concessions that have not been 
completed: the west area adjacent to the game room with the possible 
installation of a toy shop; the east area adjacent to the ice 
cream-cookie shop with the possible installation of a paper products 
or electronics shop; United 's suggested relinquishment of 
approximately 4,000 to 5,000 square feet of space in the Hub area as 
a possible mini principal concessionaire. 

Mr. Turpen said this preliminary information is being provided the 
Commission for an early response to staff. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if there was a timetable. 

Mr. Skip Conrad, Airport Property Management, responded that by July 
1 the Commission should have the bid specifications for the Hub; 
specifications for the west end area should be ready by June 1, and, 
the east and area should be ready by July 31. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked when tenants would be in those premises. 

Mr. Conrad responded that if the Commission received the bid 
specifications on the dates that have been targeted, it will take 4-8 
weeks for the bid opening and the concession opens 180 days after 
that. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if the ice cream parlor facility had been 
fixed. 

Mr. Yuen responded that Howard Friedman had been out of town so 
nothing has been done with the ice cream parlor. 



Minutes, April 5, 1983, Page 3 



With respect to the limousine booths, Mr. Orloff recommended that the 
current booth operators (Airport Limousine, Golden Sedan, Associated 
Limousine and SFO Airporter) be allowed to represent other ground 
transportation operators and act as agents to sell their services. 
Ihis would give a wider choice to the public, provide more revenue to 
the Airport and eliminate the competition for space. 

Mr. Turpen asked that the matter be put over to the first meeting in 
May. He has a copy of Mr. Orloff 's letter and his comments will be 
taken into consideration. 

Mr. lurpen explained that over the past four years, the Commission 
and staff have made a diligent effort to improve and rationalize the 
traffic system at the Airport. The ground transportation system is 
well controlled and functioning smoothly. The method of conveying 
available services is open to some suggestion and consideration, 
however, he would not recommend any deregulation. 

Mr. lurpen will get back to the Commission with a full report and 
provide copies to any interested parties. 

Commissioner Coblentz suggested this be looked at in closed session 
due to current litigation. 

6. Passenger Information Service 

This a follow-up to the Director's 
Report dated March 1, 1983, outlining 
passenger information services 
contemplated for implementation at San 
Francisco International Airport. 

Mr. Turpen said there are four aspects the Commission should 
recognize: an airport guide; where-to-park inserts which would 
identify an airline with a color-coded location in the garage; 
computerized ground transportation system; and, a "You Are Here" 
system on the upper level. 

The attachment (included in the Commission package) outlines what is 
currently available. 

Commissioner Kadish said she feels it essential that passenger 
information services be clearly provided. She remarked that she did 
not recall the Commission authorizing a disabled and elderly 
brochure. Commissioner Kadish feels that information should be 
integrated into the regular brochure. She is concerned about how 
distribution will be handled should this information not be 
incorporated into the regular brochure. 

Commissioner Kadish feels there is a need for a terminal guide. She 
offered Mr. Turpen a copy of the Tampa Airport guide, which covers 
transportation and information about the terminal. She feels the 
Airport guide should include ground transportation and information 
on facilities for the elderly and disabled rather than having three 
separate guides. 

Commissioner Kadish said there should be a plan for distribution to 
passengers who arrive at the Airport without brochures. 

Mr. Turpen responded that her thoughts were not very different from 
what staff was pursuing. He said that if there is a brochure on 
facilities for the disabled it has been done with the authority of 
the Commission. 

Mr. Turpen said he would look into Commissioner Radish's request of 
getting information into the hands of passengers arriving at the 
Airport . 



Minutes, April 5, 1983, Page 5 



Commissioner Coblentz instructed Mr. Yuen to inform Host 
International that all the members of the Commission berated him 
today and that there would be repercussions if the ice cream parlor 
was not put together within a month. 

Commissioner Kadish said that five months ago Art Spring of Host 
International appeared before the Commission and promised that the 
tax on take-out ice cream cones and would be removed. She said tax 
was still being charged and asked property management to look into it. 

Commissioner Coblentz said Los Angeles International Airport sold the 
same ice cream and asked staff to check on how much they were 
charging. 

3. Concession Status Report - Central Terminal Leases 

Report outlining status of each of the 
Central "terminal leases 

Mr. Turpen said there are 23 Central Terminal concessions. 
Twenty-two concessions will open on time, however, the International 
Room was significantly impacted by the renovation program and will 
not open on time. 



Commissioner Goosby asked if the space that will eventually be 
vacated by the Medical Clinic be set aside for passenger services. 

Mr. TUrpen responded that the area was prime concession space however 
there is an area in the North Connector that is a passenger service 
facility thought it has not yet been defined. 

Items 4 and 5 were put over. 

4. Limousine/ vehicle Type 

Limousine/Vehicle Type for services at 
SFIA. 

5. Status of Pending Limousine Applications 

Report recommending the denial of the 
three limousine applicants for 
On-Airport Limousine Permit. 

Mr. Clifford Qrloff , President of Airport Connection and Airport 
Limousine said he understands the Airport is considering using a 
computerized ground transportation information system to make it 
easier for passengers to use scheduled services. His company 
operates a scheduled service to and from the Airport and they have 
requested, on several occasions, to allow their sales representatives 
to tell passengers about the services. Each time they have been 
denied permission. They would like to operate a manual information 
system. 

With respect to Limousine/Vehicle type he said that vans are an 
efficient way to move groups of people and he encouraged the 
Commission not to exclude them from performing door-to-door limousine 
service at the Airport. 

Mr. Orloff told the Commission that out of the 26 major airports in 
the United States only San Francisco International and O'Hare 
airports had restrictions as to vehicle type. 



Minutes, April 5, 1983, Page 4 



With respect to the limousine booths, Mr. Orloff recommended that the 
current booth operators (Airport Limousine, Golden Sedan, Associated 
Limousine 1 and SFO Airporter) be allowed to represent other ground 
transportation operators and act as agents to sell their services. 
This would give a wider choice to the public, provide more revenue to 
the Airport and eliminate the competition for space. 

Mr. TUrpen asked that the matter be put over to the first meeting in

Special Meeting of March 8, 1983. 



D. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

1. Limousine/Type of Vehicle 

Director's Report recommending the 
type of vehicle for Airport 
Limousine Service. 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Director of Airports, said this item was in response 
to an earlier Commission inquiry concerning the rationale behind the 



Minutes, Special Meeting, May 5, 1983, Page 1 



Director's Reports (Continued) 

passenger limitation for limousines. A limousine is defined as a 
luxury-type automobile *s opposed to a van or mini bus. The 
nine-passenger limitation which staff recognizes originated from an 
early State Public Utilities Commission definition, however, it is no 
longer an operative requirement of the State. 

Mr. Turpen recommended continuation of the nine-passenger limitation. 

Commissioner Coblentz commented that the last time this item was 
discussed, it was argued that limousine services should be put out to 
bid. 

Mr. Turpen said there are currently three limousine companies with 
permits and three additional limousine firms have petitioned for 
permits. Staff is reviewing this and will get back to the Commission 
on May 17 with a recommendation. 

Commissioner Coblentz said he was inclined to agree with comments 
Commissioner Goosby made at the last meeting and said he was in favor 
of competitive bidding. 

Commissioner Fleishell commented that not enough is being done 
regarding maintenance and quality of cabs. Two years ago there was a 
discussion to set up a maintenance program similar to New York's but 
nothing has been done. 

Mr. TUrpen responded that there is an annual inspection program, an 
emission inspection program, safety inspection program and a spot 
check on safety and cleanliness. He said possibly what was needed 
was stricter enforcement. 

2. Modification to Ground Transportation Signage on Island 
Columns — Lower Level Roadway 

This report outlines proposed 
signage improvements to denote the 
various ground transportation 
services available at the Center 
Island, Lower Level Terminal 
Roadway . 

Mr. Turpen said the lower level has a number of columns that have 
been banded with different colors signifying the different types of 
ground transportation. Commissioner Kadish requested that this 
system, which was established in 1980, be reviewed. Staff has 
reviewed it and agrees that a larger, more formal representation of 
ground transportation alternatives be made and recommends enhancing 
the system by enlarging the graphics to make it more visible. 

3. Valet Parking - January to March, 1983 

Director's Report covering the 
three-month period from January to 
March, 1983, on valet Parking 
Service as requested by the 
Commission. Recommendations to 
retain Valet Parking. 

Mr. Turpen told the Commission that valet was breaking even and it 
will continue to be monitored. 

Commissioner Coblentz said that if it looses money he will move to 
abolish valet parking. 



Minutes, Special Meeting, May 5, 1983, Page 2 



ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

Coitinissioner Goosby said th*t thp report by Clemente Obregon of the Human 
Rights Commission on affirmative action progress by Airport tenants 
mentions the number of responses received but does not mention the number 
of inquiries that were sent. Commissioner Goosby suggested that 
information be included in the next report. He also suggested that Mr. 
Obregon include recommendations to improve affirmative action. 



F. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 
The following item was unanimously adopted as amended. 

4. Central Terminal Rental Credit to Host International - Approval of 
Concept 

No. 83-0114 . Resolution authorizing staff to 

proceed with negotiating a final 
amount of a rental credit to Host 
International, Inc., for 
improvement, refurbishment, and 
damages to Central Terminal Host 
premises during Modernization and 
Replacement Program. 

Commissioner Coblentz said he would vote in favor of this but 
recommended final documentation be held up until something is done 
with the ice cream parlor. 

Commissioner Fleishell said Host owes the Airport approximately 
$280,000 and that an agreement should not have been made to reimburse 
Host without having included this claim. 

Mr. Skip Conrad, Airport Property Management, said progress has been 
made on the ice cream parlor in the form of a commitment from Art 
Spring of Host. The facility will be re-designed and the revised 
drawings will be submitted to the Commission for approval. 

Commissioner Coblentz reiterated his feeling that final authorization 
not be given until the ice cream parlor has been completed. 

The following items were unanimously adopted. 

5. Approval of Cigarette Vending Lease Specifications and Authorization

7. $250,000 Supplemental Appropriation for Professional Services Contract 

No. 83-0117 Resolution approving request for 

Supplemental Appropriation for 
professional services of the law 
firm of Morrison & Foerster in 
connection with litigation 
entitled, Lorrie's Travel and 
Tours, Inc., vs. Airporter, Inc., 
et. al." 

Commissioner Fleishell said monthly detailed costs were supposed to 
be sent to the Airport, yet no billings have been received to date. 

Mr. Garibaldi, Airport General Counsel, responded that the contract 
has not been certified by the Controller so no billings have been 
submitted. 

Commissioner Coblentz agreed that monthly billings and time sheets 
should be submitted. 

Commissioner Fleishell told Mr. Garibaldi it was his responsibility 
as Chief Counsel for the Airport to monitor this. 

Mr. Garibaldi responded that he was in continual contact with the 
attorney's working on the anti-trust case, and that he constantly 
reminds them that the cost must be kept down. 

Commissioner Goosby said it was his understanding that the attorneys 
for the small claims cases were hired for an initial sum and it is 
expected that they will come before the Commission for another 
appropriation. 

Mr. Garibaldi responded that they will probably be back before the 
Commission for funds to complete the balance of this Fiscal Year. At 
the present time, there is a limit on what is available to pay them. 

Commissioner Fleishell suggested this be discussed in closed sesion 
due to the fact that the subject is a matter of litigation. 

The following item was unanimously adopted as amended. 

8. Resolution Approving Modification No. 14 (Type II) to Contract No. 
1200B(4), Central Terminal Remodeling 

No. 83-0118 Modification includes work 

required due to unforseen 
conditions in existing building 
and additions or revisions 
attributable to deficiencies in 
the plans and specifications. 

Commissioner Goosby recommended that staff seek reimbursement if 
after investigating the deficiencies it is found that the fault lies 
with the architect. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked how long it would take to determine 
fault. 

Mr. Turpen responded that staff has a very positive working 
relationship with the architects and that it was a matter of sitting 
down and reviewing the circumstances with them. 

Mr. Turpen said it is BPC's feeling that moving the project forward 
is critical and they do not want to get bogged down in controversy.

Commissioner Fleishell asked that a receive be adc".cd to th3

after a specified amount of time. 

Commissioner Coblentz suggested a resolve be added to the resolution 
calling for a report to the Commission after 60 days.

E. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

1. Luggage Carts/Customs Area - Central Terminal - Verbal Report 

Report recommending the type of 
Luggage Carts in Customs Area of 
Central Terminal. 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, explained that the Airport entered 
into an agreement with Smarte Carte two or three years ago to provide 
carts. As part of that agreement Smarte Carte was obligated to 
provide 30 carts free of charge in the existing customs area. Due to 
the shortage of carts, the Airport and Smarte Carte agreed to 
increase the number to 50. Customs staff and Smarte Carte estimates 
indicate that the new international arrivals facility will require 
400 carts on a continuous basis. Staff and Smarte Carte have 
discussed requirements for maintenance and concerns expressed by 
customs. 

Smarte Carte has proposed that they provide the 400 carts in the 
customs arrivals area on a continuing basis and that there would be a 
charge. They contend that if they can provide the change or tokens 
necessary to obtain a cart the need to confine them in the customs 
area would no longer be necessary. This would result in additional 
revenue to the Airport and insure the required number of carts 
available in the customs area. 

Mr. Turpen said this system was in use at the Houston, New Orleans, 
Chicago airports and that and, that Honolulu is switching to this 
system. 

The second alternative currently being explored by staff is to have 
the Airport pay for and maintain the carts. This means a significant 
cash outlay for the Airport and the problem of keeping the carts 
inside the customs area. Customs is concerned that there would be 
400 carts lined up against the cues and that they would not be 
recycled as they should. 

The question is whether or not the Commission wants to pursue the 
concept of 400 pay carts with the ability to move them out of the 
customs area. Smarte Carte has indicated they would be willing to 
try this on a one-year trial basis. 

Mr. Turpen asked Mr. Dan Berglund of Smarte Carte to come forward and 
address the Commission. 

Mr. Berglund said that several weeks ago Smarte Carte was asked to 
supply and maintain 200 carts to the customs area. 

Mr. Berglund wondered if free carts, provided and contained in the 
customs area, would be fair to all parties involved. He said that if 
several 747' s arrived at the same time 800 carts would not be 
enough. He told the Commission that in Houston and Chicago Smarte 
Carte can provide as many carts as are necessary on a charge basis 
and they are willing to do the same thing in San Francisco. 

Minutes, May 17, 1983, Page 2 



Director's Report (Continued) 



Mr. Berglund said Smarte Carte would provide an employee in the 
customs area to make change so passengers could rent carts. If a 
passenger enters customs without funds a Smarte Carte attendant will 
give him the cart gratis. In so doing, Smarte Carte will lose 25^ 
with each free cart since this is the amount that is refunded when a 
cart is returned. If passengers entering the area only have foreign 
currency Smarte Carte is willing to work with the foreign currency 
exchange service to make sure funds will be available and the 
passengers will be served. 

Commissioner Coblentz commented that usually passengers do not have 
the coin of the realm when they arrive in a foreign country and there 
are always long lines to exchange currency. He felt that the 
additional revenue the Airport receives is secondary to the 
convenience of passengers. He said that barriers could be put up 
preventing passengers from bringing carts into the garage if it was 
decided that carts would be provided free of charge, but there would 
be an expense for the Airport in gathering the carts. 

Commissioner Fleishell felt that the carts should be free and if they 
have to be restrained they can be restrained. He said that if a 
profit is to be made then the service should be put out to bid since 
this would be an abnormal extension of the existing contract and is 
not what was voted on several years ago. 

Commissioner Goosby said he did not think it fair to ask Smarte Carte 
to provide 400 free carts. He said he has no objection to bidding 
the item and charging for the carts, or, in the Airport providing 
free carts and paying someone to retrieve them. 

Mr. Turpen commented that the agreement with Smarte Carte states that 
the Director can provide for additional cart locations at the 
Airport. He said the Airport always has the option of bidding the 
item and providing a number of free carts in the customs area. 
Instead, he felt that the Airport should proceed with Smarte Carte; 
that the Director specify additional locations in the customs area 
and charge for the carts; and, that this be on a one-year trial basis 
with quarterly reports to the Commission. 

Commissioner Coblentz commented that there will be a free for all to 
obtain free carts. He suggested that the Airport try it for a year 
and during that time staff should keep track of expenses for 
personnel to collect the carts and for maintenance. 

Commissioner Goosby said it was not realistic to expect skycaps to 
take care of the volume of people going through customs without 
carts. He suggested that possibly the skycaps could be used to 
retrieve the carts rather than hiring from the outside. 

Commissioner Fleishell commented that if the carts are kept in the 
customs area the newly arrived passenger will run to get one. If the 
carts are allowed out of the customs area there are people currently 
at the Airport that can be rewarded for retrieving them. He 
reiterated his opinion that the carts should be free. 

Commissioner Coblentz felt that there may not be enough time to bid 
this before the terminal opened. 

Mr. Turpen said that with 60 days remaining before the terminal opens 
their alternatives were limited. He recommended that the trial 
period be pursued and he would get back to the Commission 120 days 
after the terminal opens with a full report on what it would take to 
execute the alternate and a report on how this program has done. 



Minutes, May 17, 1983, Page 3 



Director's Reports (Continued) 



Commissioner Bernstein asked how long the contract has to run. 

Mr. Berglund responded that the contract began in the summer of 1980 
with an option that can be exercised by the Airport in 1985. 

Mr. Berglund addressed Commissioner Fleishell's comment on providing 
free carts, and responded that while it is true that it can be a 
free-for-all in obtaining a cart, it is a relatively simple matter to 
return them to the area. When barriers are put up prohibiting 
passengers from taking the carts out of the customs area you are 
defeating the purpose of offering the carts for free. Smarte Carte 
recommends a $1.00 fee be charged (the fee has been $1.00 since 1975) 
and that the service be installed with the criteria for success being 
whether it works on a similar basis with the operations in Houston, 
Chicago and Honolulu. 

Mr. Turpen responded that the Airports criteria is probably somewhat 
higher than that of the airports mentioned and that the criteria must 
be measured against what is acceptable to staff and the Commission. 

Commission Coblentz recommended going ahead with the one-year trial 
period keeping in mind the strong feelings of the Commission that 
convenience to the traveler comes first. He also felt that there 
should be no free carts and that there should be facilities available 
from which to obtain American coins. 

Mr. Berglund suggested that rather than having a one-year trial 
period, the Airport grant a second five-year option to Smarte Carte 
with the right to cancel at any time with 30-days notice if they 
don't perform per the specifications of the contract. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked under what conditions the Airport could 
cancel . 

Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airport General Counsel, replied that Smarte Carte 
must be in some sort of default under the agreement and he is 
concerned as to how default would be established. 

Commissioner Coblentz expressed his concern that if the Commission, 
at some point, decided it would be a better convenience for the 
public to have free carts the contract could not be cancelled. 

Mr. Berglund said that Smarte Carte would be in agreement to 
negotiate mutually acceptable criteria for success. 

Mr. Berglund explained that his concern over the one-year trial was 
due to the large investment that would be made in the customs area 
and that their financiers might not be willing to extend money for a 
12 -month contract. 

Mr. Turpen recommended that the Commission go with the one-year trial 
period and look at an alternative during that time. 

Commissioner Coblentz suggested that if staff could not come to an 
agreement with Smarte Carte that a special meeting be set up rather 
than waiting for the next regular meeting. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked for a count of rented carts in the 
customs area in the event this goes out to bid. 

Mr. Bill Williams, representative for skycaps, said that to put 200 
or 300 carts in the customs area would create a traffic flow problem 
for passengers. He said it will be too congested and will create a 
fire hazard. He also told the Commission that there are many people 
who cannot get their bags onto the carts; they need skycap assistance. 



Minutes, May 17, 1983, Page 4 



Director's Reports (Continued) 

Commissioner Coblentz remarked that most foreign airports have 
skycaps as well as carts. He felt that both services should be 
offered. 

Mr. Turpen commented that the customs area has four 747 carousels and 
20 primary inspection stations, and, with the anticipated processing 
time, there appears to be sufficient space to accommodate passengers 
and carts. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if Allied has been contacted to provide 
additional personnel. 

Mr. Turpen responded that Allied is under contract with the airlines 
and normally they are approached regarding the adequacy of skycap 
service. 

Commissioner Goosby suggested that if space does become a problem 
perhaps the airlines should be contacted with a request for 
additional skycaps. 

Mr. Williams felt that the skycaps were being eliminated. 

Mr. James Muellner, President of Smarte Carte, Inc., said that he 
would be agreeable to the one-year trial. As for Mr. Williams 
concerns, he remarked that Smarte Carte has never displaced skycap 
service in their 15 years of operation and has always worked well 
with them. He commented that their service would reduce congestion 
at the exit. The carts are designed to take up a minimum amount of 
space and he said that they could provide all the carts needed and 
still allow room for skycaps to function.

Mr. Van Wert said he has a letter addressed to the Commission that he 
would like to distribute. He explained that the letter was drafted 
in anticipation of circumstances that are different from what has 
evolved. The intent of the letter was to provide background 
information on the cogeneration facility. He said that United would 
be coming before the Commission in June asking for some definitive 
action regarding this program. 



4. Concession Status Report - Central Terminal Leases 

Report outlining status of the Central 
Terminal concessions. 

Mr. Turpen said this report remains the same as the last report to 
the Commission. All concessions, except for the third floor 
International Room, are proceeding on schedule and will open in 
concert with the opening of the Central Terminal. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked how much time would elapse between the 
opening of the Central Terminal and the opening of the International 
Room. 

Mr. Jason Yuen, Administrator, Bureau of Planning and Construction, 
said it was his understanding from Host that the International Room 
would not be open until the first of the year. 

Mr. Turpen said that the delay with the third floor was due to the 
significant structural work that had to be done to support the 
tower. This work had a tremendous impact on the old International 
Room. 



5. Report on Central Terminal Opening Ceremony - Verbal Report 

Mr. Turpen said the Mayor will be available to dedicate the Central 
Terminal on July 13, with the time tentatively set for 5:00 p.m. 
There will be tours on that day prior to the dedication and a 
cocktail party afterwards in the lobby. On July 14, Pan Am's flight 
No. 6, arriving from Hong Kong at 10:00 a.m., will be the first 
international flight to arrive at the terminal. It will begin the 
transfer of carriers from the South to the Central Terminal, and by 
July 21 Pier G, the existing international area, will be vacated by 
the international carriers and shut down. This is 18-months minus 
about four days from the date the terminal was closed. 

Mr. Turpen told the Commission they will receive written information 
regarding plans for the opening. 

Mr. Turpen thanked Jason Yuen and his staff as well as the 
contractors and architects for bringing this project in on schedule. 
He said he was very proud of Mr. Yuen and his staff for their 
accomplishment. 

He said there are 60 days remaining until the opening and any changes 
will be frozen for that time in order to minimize non-planned 
projects during that period, and will be picked up after the opening. 

Commissioner Goosby congratulated the Director, architects and Jason 
Yuen on the design, as well as the Commission.

understanding that staff has raised questions on materials being used 
there. He wants to make certain that staff completely approves of 
the materials.

Commissioner Goosby asked if Primo Angeli was sub-contracting the 
printing. 

Mr. Ron Wilson, Director of Community Affairs, responded that due to 
the time constraints the City Purchaser asked that the graphics 
designer select a printer and that this is at no cost to the Airport. 

Commissioner Goosby commented that he is not pleased with Mr. 
Angeli 's inability to find a minority subcontractor. Commissioner 
Goosby asked that someone tell Mr. Angeli that if he wants City 
business he is going to have to do better in finding minority 
subcontractors. He is very displeased and would not vote for the 
item if time were not a problem. Commissioner Goosby questioned Mr. 
Angeli 's intentions as to the hiring of a minority subcontractor.

Clifford R. Briscoe as Deputy Director 
for Operations at the closed session 
of May 17, 1983. 



E. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

1. Opening of Central Terminal - Verbal Report 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, reminded the Commission that he had 
sent a memo on May 31 outlining the anticipated activities of the 
Central Terminal opening. All phases of the opening, including the 
completion of the building, concessions and plans for the dedication 
ceremony, are going very well. The Mayor's availability for the July 
13 dedication has been reconfirmed. 

July 14 has been reserved for the Pan Am inaugural flight from Hong 
Kong. Full operation in the terminal will begin on July 15 with the 
relocation of international operations to the Central Terminal from 
Pier G in the South Terminal and the subsequent closure of that pier. 

Mr. Turpen said he was confident the date, as outlined, will be met 
and a follow up report will be given at the next meeting. 

Commissioner Bernstein, asked if the art work will be in place. 

Commissioner Kadish responded that she learned at the Airport-Art 
Joint Committee meeting last week that there will be some pieces that 
will not be in place for the opening ceremony. She suggested that 
Ms. Cameron, Director of the Airport Temporary Exhibition Program, 
develop an alternative approach should all the art works not be in 
place. Commissioner Kadish said that there are a number of problems 
that are taking an inordinate amount of staff's time and suggested 
that Mr. Turpen determine whether an alternative approach is 
necessary and work it out with Ms. Cameron, with a report to the 
Commission. 

Commissioner Goosby hoped that the guides provided by the various 
airlines would reflect the international flavor of the opening. 

Commisioner Bernstein suggested that the artists not be paid until 
the works are completed. 

Commissioner Kadish responded that they would not be paid until the 
works are installed and approved by the Joint Committee. 



Taxicab Inspection 

Director's report on the status of the 
taxicab inspection program at the 
Airport. 

Mr. Turpen said this report was in response to a request by 
Commissioner Fleishell for information on the taxicab program. The 
program has been cited by other airports as one of the best in the 
country. The complaint rate continues to be low, and is far less 
than is being experienced elsewhere. Mr. Turpen commended Sheldon 
Fein, Landside Operations, and his staff in doing an excellent job. 



Minutes, June 7, 1983, Page 2 



Director's Reports (Continued) 



Status of Host's International Room. 

Report detailing current status of 
Host's International Room. 

Mr. Turpen said the International Room was the only concession that 
will be delayed until after the first of the year. The delay was due 
to the decision to relocate the tower to the Central Terminal and the 
significant amount of structural work that was needed to support it. 
This structural work significantly impacted the International Room 
due to the tremendous amount of steel that was put through the 
facility. 

Commissioner Kadish asked that this item be put over to closed 
session in order to discuss a question of liability. 



F. ITEMS INTIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

Commissioner Goosby commented that there was supposed to be a discussion 
on limousines at this meeting and asked why the item was not calendared. 

Mr. Turpen responded that at the last meeting the item was put over by the 
Commission President and will be re-calendared at the call of the 
Commission. 

Commissioner Goosby said it was his understanding that there would be 
further discussion. When the item is re-calendared he would like to find 
out whether there could be a competitive procedure to award the permits 
rather than just renewing them. 

Mr. Turpen responded that staff is aware of the Commission's feelings and 
will recommend some type of bidding forum in view of the fact that the 
number of applicants will exceed the available space. 

Commissioner Kadish hoped Mr. Orloff 's suggestions, made at the April 5 
meeting, will be considered. Staff was to have reported back to the 
Commission in May. 

Mr. Turpen said Mr. Orloff 's suggestions were evaluated and incorporated 
in the report to the Commission. 

Commissioner Kadish said she did not feel it was incorporated in the 
report . 



Commissioner Goosby asked if staff would check with the airlines and find 
out if they had plans to hire summer help. He also asked if it were 
possible for the Commission to have some sort of input in compiling a list 
of employment seekers from the communities that the airlines might want to 
consider. 

Mr. Turpen said there was some discussion on this but because of the 

significant number of layoffs in the airline community that program has 

been cut back. He said he would be happy to go to the airlines and inform 
them that a list of applicants is available. 



Minutes, June 7, 1983, Page 3 



Items Initiated by Commissioners (Continued) 

Commissioner Kadish asked that the policy manual be placed on the trailing 
calendar, as originally requested by Commissioner Goosby in March. She 
also said that there has been no response to her request that a procedure 
be developed noting how policy additions and changes would be identified 
and transmitted. 



Commissioner Kadish said that cigarette and other vending machines were 
approved in May and questions having any more vending machines in the 
terminals. She feels they have destroyed the pleasant ambience in the 
North Terminal and does not want this to happen in the South and Central 
Terminals. Commissioner Kadish suggests reconsideration of the action 
authorizing vending machines, or, as an alternative, to design a wall into 
which they can fit. 

Mr. Turpen said that alternative has been discussed. The other 
alternative is to abandon vending machines and install carts on each pier 
which would carry cigarettes, newspapers, candy, and gum. However, there 
are a number of legal and practical questions that must be answered. He 
recommended that carts be explored first, and, failing that, some type of 
facade for the vending machines could be looked into that would be uniform 
in nature and specified in the tenant guide. 

Commissioner Kadish said that this should be done before they are put out 
to bid. She felt that sacrificing the ambience of the terminals is not 
worth the $3,000-$6,000 a year in revenue derived from the machines. 

Commissioner Goosby responded that vending machines were not only a 
convenience to the passenger but the merchandise is offered at a lower 
cost. He suggested installing the machines and then looking into the 
carts. 

Mr. Turpen said there are three courses of action from which the 
Commission can choose: 1) delay bidding the vending machines until staff 
can come back to the Commission with an alternative; 2) instruct staff to 
go ahead with the vending machines; 3) install the vending machines on a 
permitted basis to give staff time to look at the cart alternative. 

Mr. Turpen recommended delaying the bids and continuing with the existing 
machines on a permitted basis. 

Commissioner Kadish asked staff to develop a wall into which the machines 
could fit or, if sufficient funds are available, to coordinate the 
development of such a wall with the architects. 

Mr. Jason Yuen, Administrator, Bureau of Planning and Construction, 
responded that Gensler has already submitted a proposal and they have 
picked out the vending machine manufacturer they would like to see against 
this wall. The problem is getting the vendors to follow through. He said 
this information has been given to Skip Conrad, Airport Property Manager. 

Commissioner Kadish asked if this could be incorporated in the bid. 

Mr. Conrad responded that it could, however, there will be a problem in 
meeting the July 13 target date if the Airport went with Gensler' s 
proposed installation and chose the machines he recommended. Gensler 
estimates this would be accomplished 60-90 days after award of the bid so 
it would not meet the July 13 opening. 



Minutes, June 7, 1983, Page 4 



Items Initiated by Commissioner (Continued) 

Mr. Turpen said perhaps this alternative should be pursued and the cart 
concept could be looked at for the South Terminal. 

Commissioner Bernstein commented that some of the machines were not kept 
in good order and were a disgrace and a reflection on management. He felt 
they should be removed. 



Commissioner Bernstein said he promised the Mayor and the Finance 
Committee that the Airport would give them a report on legal fees. An 
agreement was made that attorneys would submit monthly itemized billings, 
yet, several months have passed and nothing has been received. Bills will 
not be paid unless statements are received. 



G. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 
The following items were unanimously adopted. 

4. Resolution Awarding Professional Services Contract to S. Iyama § 
Associates for the Design of a New Airport Medical Clinic - $29,000. 
Resolution also approves overall project budget - $306,250 

No. 83-0157 

Mr. Turpen said this item was consistent with the Commission's 
direction to staff on the extension of the Medical Clinic contract. 
It will be located adjacent to the existing Medical Clinic where the 
Post Office used to be. The existing location will be converted to 
some sort of concession space. 

Commissioner Bernstein said he was under the impression that the 
construction costs would not exceed $250,000. 

Mr. Jason Yuen said that construction budget has been maintained. 
The $306,000 reflects the architects fees, contingencies and staff 
salary. Normally, there are two budgets that the Commission 
approves: the construction budget and the contingency and 
administrative budget which, in this case, adds up to the total 
project budget of $306,000. 

Commissioner Kadish asked that in the future the Commission be given 
the total construction budget for approval with a complete breakdown 
of costs. 

Mr. Turpen cautioned that in the early stages of estimating a project 
a plus or minus percentage might be wise. 

5. Amendments to Administrative Code 

No. 83-0158 Resolution establishing the monetary 

limit of the Informal Construction 
Contracts contained in the Procedures 
for Construction Contract Approvals at 
the amount provided in Sections 6.28 
and 6.29 of the San Francisco 
Administrative Code. 



Minutes, June 7, 1983, Page 5 



Pol Op (Continued) 

The following item was put over. 

6. Modification No. 4 to Professional Services Agreement with Crothall 
Systems West 

To provide a one-time cost to 
inventory and to enter equipment in 
Preventative Maintenance System for 
the following: Central Terminal, 
Connectors and Boarding Area "D" and 
other newly constructed Airport 
structures. 

Total Cost: $81,500.00 

Commissioner Kadish asked how the cost was arrived at. 

Mr. Dennis Bouey, Deputy Director of Facilities, Operations and 
Maintenance, responded that the cost was arrived at by estimating the 
total number of pieces of equipment on a walk-through inspection by 
the consultant. About 6,000 pieces of equipment were estimated. He 
told the Commission that the dollar amount of the contract is lower, 
per piece of equipment, than previous contracts by about 10 percent. 

Commissioner Kadish asked what has been accomplished to date. 

Mr. Bouey replied that the Airports down-time per piece of equipment 
has been reduced. Craft personnel have been more effectively 
utilized in terms of preventive maintenance, routine maintenance and 
emergency repairs. Mr. Bouey cited the example of emergency repairs 
on pipes as having gone down 50 percent last year. This a 
substantial cost savings which more than overwhelms the cost of the 
contract. Mr. Bouey also told the Commission that this was a way of 
identifying pieces of equipment that are inefficient. 

Commissioner Kadish suggested that when the Airport embarks on a 
major expenditure the Commission should receive information in the 
form of a chart that identifies what the expenditure has accomplished. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked if a brochure was available on this 
system. He recommended the item be put over for two weeks. 

Mr. Bouey responded that he would send Commissioner Bernstein a 
brochure . 

Commissioner Kadish said that when the contractor appeared before the 
Commission he said he would train Airport staff to handle this system 
in the future. She asked when this would happen. 

Mr. Turpen responded that back in 1979 there was no preventive 
maintenance program. A study was done that year to determine what 
percentage of man hours was spent on direct labor and it was found 
that it was less than 50 percent. An objective of 70 percent applied 
to direct labor was set in 1979, and a scheduling system was 
developed. 

When Crothall came to the Airport part of the requirement of 
turn-over of new facilities to Airport staff was that those 
facilities have a preventive maintenance program that is compatible 
with the Crothall system. At this point, Airport staff is running 
the Crothall system in-house, but this is a question of doing the 
physical inventory and developing the check lists, the preventive 



Minutes, June 7, 1983, Page 6 



Pol Op (Continued) 

maintenance items and the frequencies. In the future, all contracts 
on facilities turn-overs will have incorporated into them a 
requirement that a preventive maintenance schedule be provided along 
with the facility when it is complete. 

Commissioner Goosby said he would not vote on this unless there is 
program in place to train personnel. 

Commissiner Bernstein said he would like to put the item over for two 
weeks and asked if there was an urgency. 

Mr. Turpen responded that there was. 

Mr. Bouey, commenting on Commissioner Goosby 's remark, said that 
staff has been trained to interpret, hand out work orders, and make 
certain the job gets done. When the contract expires staff will no 
longer receive work orders from the company. Staff is currently 
meeting with computer companies to determine if the software is 
compatible with the hardware being purchased so that the work orders 
can be programmed and generated by staff every week. 

Mr. Turpen responded that by putting this over it will delay, by two 
weeks, the inputting of this information into the system. It will 
delay the turnover of the equipment to the Airport and if anything 
goes wrong in the interim there could be a cost incurred in 
responding to it. 

Commissioner Kadish recommended putting the item over. 

Mr. Bouey remarked that the contractor has said that many of the 
areas he would like to get into are being closed up. 

Commissioner Kadish made the suggestion that if it is important that 
Crothall identify pieces before they are closed in the wall, that the 
work be done on the remaining $30,000 of the old contract. 

Mr. Turpen responded that that money is committed to certain contract 
obligations and cannot be adjusted. The Commission will receive a 
report at the next meeting. 

The following items were unanimously adopted. 

7. Airport Improvement Program (AIP No. 2), Project Application for 
$5,424,750.00 

No. 83-0159 Resolution approving the submission of 

Project Application for AIP Fund of 
$5,424,750.00 and requesting Boardof 
Supervisors to authorize filing of

resulting Grant offer. 

8. $80,000 Contract With the Museum Society, Fine Arts Museums 

No. 83-0160 Contract for $80,000 with the Museum 

Society, Fine Arts Museums of San 
Francisco for the purpose of providing 
and implementing Temporary Exhibitions 
at San Francisco International Airport 
for the Fiscal Year 1983-84. 



Minutes, June 7, 1983, Page 7 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Ms. Elsa Cameron, Director, Temporary Exhibition Program, said this 
is the agreement that is entered into each year with the Fine Arts 
Museums so the Airport can have the Temporary Exhibitions Program. 
The Fine Arts Museums provides the Airport with the wrapping, 
handling and trucking of art objects, posters of art exhibitions, 
fine arts insurance and a series of temporary exhibitions. Without 
this contract it would be difficult for the Airport to get the 
exhibitions or carry fine arts insurance because the credibility and 
expertise of a museum is needed.

Consent (Continued) 

Commissioner Kadish said there was a policy of this Commission which 
states: "that no airline shall lease any of its property to another 
airline for more than a 10 percent differential. . ." 

Mr. Turpen responded that the Commission has a policy that says they 
shall not do it, however, if two parties enter into an agreement and 
mutually agree upon a rate, the Commission would not get involved. 
If one party objects, an appeal can be made to the Commission. The 
Commission does have the right to approve the sub-lease if both 
parties agree. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi said all sub-leases are subject to the Lease and 
Use Agreement. This sub-lease specifically states what the rent will 
be. Staff has made the determination, based on the figures, that 
there is no profit to TWA. 

Commissioner Goosby said the Commission should know what will be paid.

Z. L. Goosby, J. Edward Fleishell. 



ANNOUNCEMENT BY SECRETARY: 



In accordance with the Brown Act, 
Section 54957.1, Jean Caramatti, 
Commission Secretary announced the 
unanimous adoption of resolution 
83-0178 approving the appointment of 
Angela Gittens as Deputy Director, 
Business Administration at the closed 
session of June 7, 1983. 



F. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 

The following item was taken out of order and unanimously adopted by the 
Commission. 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 1 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Contract 1013 

Computerized Parking Control System: 

Recommendation on Bid Approval 

No. 83-0186 Resolution for Commission to reject 

any and all bids received for Contract 
No. 1013. 

Commissioner Coblentz expressed his concern over this situation. He 
moved to reject all bids based on what he has read from the City 
Attorney and outside consultant. 

Commissioner Fleishell agreed with Commissioner Coblentz and said 
that he originally voted to hire a consultant to avoid just what has 
happened . 

Mr. Alexis J. Perillat, representing Cubic Corporation, told the 
Commission that he was informed that their bid had been rejected due 
to technical non-compliance with technical specifications but that 
the Cerand Company report does not indicate that they were in 
non-compliance. Mr. Perillat introduced General Kenneth Howton of 
Cubic Corporation. 

General Howton introduced Mr. Ray Dacosin, Vice President of Cubic 
Western Data. 

Mr. Dacosin said the Cerand report did not find that his company was 
in non-compliance and quoted from the report. It indicated that of 
the six bidders, the three lowest bidders had major technical and 
other deficiencies that would impair the product. Cubic Corporation 
was listed a having "responded in a technical and or operational 
manner that does not appear to prevent the computerized parking 
control system from meeting the requirements of the technical 
specification document, although the bidders approach is different 
from that intended." Cubic responded that they will comply by 
supplying two standard digital pieces of equipment. 

Mr. Dacosin concluded by saying that there were three bidders who 
were technically compliant, fair and open competition did take place, 
and, that their bid is not only compliant, but it is within the 
budget. He feels his company has won this bid according to the terms 
set forth by the Airports Commission and asked that the Commission 
reconsider. 

Commissioner Coblentz said the Commission is embarrassed by this, 
however, serious legal questions have been raised by the City 
Attorney's office and if the contract is awarded it will be tied up 
in litigation. 

Mr. Perillat asked where the legal difficulties were. 

Commissioner Coblentz responded that legal difficulties may not have 
been mentioned in the Cerand report but the City Attorney has serious 
concerns and that is priviliged communication between attorney and 
client. He suggested that those individuals involved might want to 
talk to Mr. Garibaldi, Airport General Counsel, after all this is 
over and perhaps he can answer some of their questions. 

Mr. Mark Hazelton, Attorney for Autoscan, said that Autoscan was the 
low bidder on the project by at least $286,000. He urged the 
Commission not to be so hard on their staff. 

Commissioner Coblentz said he was not critical of staff but of the 
ouside experts who were hired. 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 2 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Mr. Hazelton said that most of the technical non-compliance items are 
listed as "should be waived", "advised to be waived", "could be 
waived" and very few non-compliance items are listed as substantial. 
The one item listed as substantial in Autoscan's bid concerned 
mutilated versus lost tickets and the location of the taxi lanes. 
The footnote in the report stating that request for approval of this 
exception to the requirement of the technical specifications 
documents should have been made; Autoscan claims they talked to 
Cerand about a clarification. 

Mr. Hazelton also pointed out that in re-bid situation any changes in 
the specs can be looked at as favoring one bidder over another. 

Commissioner Bernstein said the Commission must follow the advice of 
the City Attorney. 

Mr. Lagarias, Attorney for Cleveland Electrical, introduced Mr. Gary 
Clodf elder who explained the costs incurred. Mr. Lagarias said he 
believed they were a responsive bidder and that this was the first 
time they had heard that there was a problem with their bid. They 
are licensed in the State, have complied with State law and submitted 
a proper bidder's bond. 

Mr. Clodf elder said that he felt the City was in a position to award 
the contract and should do so. Several of the six bids received in 
May were responsive and were submitted by responsible bidders. He 
doesn't feel that any of the problems the Commission has will be 
corrected in a re-bid. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that the bid document says that there 
must be three years experience in manufacturing and installation. He 
asked Mr. Coldf elder if it was his interpretation that the contractor 
could form a company the week before a bid and find a subcontractor 
who would manufacture the equipment and another subcontractor to 
install it threfore the contractor would be in compliance. 

Mr. Clodf elder responded that a contractor who has been installing 
the system for a period of three years andd the supplier who has been 
manufacturing them for three years or longer would be a compliance. 

Commissioner Fleishell said the language states that the bidder must 
have manufactured for three years. 

Mr. Clodf elder said they were a construction company, not a 
manufacturer. 

Mr. Lagarias stated that Cleveland has been working with Trindel's 
American branch for serveral years. 

Commissioner Fleishell said Trindel has a local subsidiary with four 
employees that sells and a subcontractor that installs. The reason 
the City has this requirement is to ensure there is someone here with 
whom we can deal. 

Commissioner Fleishell moved that all bids received on May 9 be 
rejected and to authorize the Director to advertise for the 
submission of new bids. He said the Commission deeply regrets the 
loss of time and money in this matter. He recommends that before the 
Director advertizes the new bid that the bidders meet with the 
Director, City Attorney, Cerand and the Human Rights Commission to 
make certain that all of the particular contingencies are taken care 
of. 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 3 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Commissioner Fleishell commented that some time ago he raised the 
question of bifurcated bidding and asked staff to look into it and 
put together a report. 

Commissioner Fleishell also asked if there was included in this bid a 
procedure to obtain information necessary to maintain the equipment. 

Mr. Sheldon Fein, Landside Operations, said there was a training 
program for staff along with a one-year maintenance contract. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked if the equipment had to be maintained by 
the seller or if could it be maintained by any entity. 

Mr. Fein responded that the equipment could be maintained locally but 
if certain adjustments or re-programing was necessary, you would 
probably have to go back to the company that set up the soft -ware and 
programed the computer. 

Commissioner Kadish asked if there was a pricing schedule for this 
type of maintenance or if it was free-floating once a particular 
contractor received the job. 

Mr. Fein responded that a decision would have to be made whether or 
not to go with maintenance and warranty contracts. 

Commissioner Fleishell commented that an elevator company, for 
example, will only work on their equipment. He asked if we would 
find ourselves in the same situation with this equipment and be 
subject to whatever they wanted to charge. 

Mr. Fein responded that he assumed not. 

Commissioner Coblentz commented that the Public Contract Code 
discusses security but does not recognize an irrevocable letter of 
credit and suggested alerting the Board of Supervisors about this. 
Commissioner Coblentz also noted that most banks are not state banks. 

Commissioner Kadish said that a couple of years ago the Commission 
instituted a procedure in relation to construction bids which 
separated the boiler plate items from the substantive bid. 

Mr. Turpen said he would discuss this with Mr. Yuen and Mr. Garibaldi, 



D. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

The following item was put over. 

1. Update on Services and Facilities - Host International 

Report outlining Host International's 
current status on refurbishing the 
North Terminal Ice Cream/Cookie Parlor. 

Mr. Turpen said the Commission should have received a copy of Mr. Art 
Spring's June 10 letter. He recommended putting the item on the 
trailing calendar for the August 2 meeting, by which time staff 
should have Mr. Spring's plans and can review them with the 
Commission. 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 4 



Director's Reports (Continued) 



Commissioner Coblentz objected to the amount of time it is taking 
Host to submit these plans and asked if there was any way to apply 
pressure. 

Mr. Turpen said that he had asked Host to send a representative to 
this meeting but no one was available to appear. 

Commissioner Coblentz said that there was nothing that could be done 
now but the next time Host comes up for anything he will move that it 
be denied and he is sure the vote will be unanimous. He asked Mr. 
Turpen to so inform Host. 



Commissioner Bernstein said that he received a memorandum about 
another cookie location in the North Terminal. 

Mr. Skip Conrad, Airport Property Management, said that the 
memorandum refers to the economic unviability of a second cookie shop 
in the North Terminal. This was based on reports from the current 
operator which indicate that 25-40 percent of his sales are from 
staff and employees in the terminal. 

Mr. Turpen said it was his recollection that a second location would 
not be pursued at this time. 



E. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

There were no items initiated by Commissioners. 



F. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS (Continued): 



The following item was unanimously adopted: 

2. Contract 1414 - Boarding Area B Renovation 

Contract 1415 - Boarding Area B South Concessions 

Contract 1416 - Boarding Area C, Revised South 

Terminal Program Master Schedule, Approval of Preliminary Plans, 

Revised Master Schedule and Authorization for Bid Call 

No. 83-0179 Resolution approving the revised South 

Terminal Program Master Schedule, the 
preliminary plans for the Phase II 
projects of the South Terminal 
Renovation Program, Contracts 1414, 
1415, and 1416, and authorizing the 
Director to call for bids when ready. 

The following item was adopted by a four to one vote with Commissioner 
Bernstein casting the dissenting vote. 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 5

3. Resolutions Approving Contract Modifications To: 

No. 83-0180 1. Contract 1220, Terminal Connectors 

- $121,622 
No. 83-0181 2. Contract 1200B(3), Boarding Area 

D - $112,564 
No. 83-0182 3. Contract 1200B(4), Central Terminal 

Remodeling - $448,167 

Final construction modifications to 
Contracts 1220, 1200B(3), and 1200B(4) 
(exclude Control Tower portion) to 
complete construction of Central 
Terminal Complex (lower five floors). 

Modifications to include three 
categories of work: 

a. Work requested by airlines, Art 
Commission. 

b. Work required to correct unforseen 
conditions in existing building and 
site. 

c. Additions and revisions 
attributable to deficiencies in the 
plans and specifications. 

Commissioner Bernstein expressed his concern over the costs of the 
modifications. 

Mr. Yuen explained, as an example, that 95 percent of the existing 
wiring and conduits had to be replaced. 

Mr. Yuen explained, for example, that the original intent was to use 
the existing wiring conduits but it was found that 95 percent of the 
electrical system was rusted or contained water and had to be 
replaced. 

Mr. Yuen further explained that the original drawings of the Central 
Terminal were used and were later found to be inaccurate. 

Commissioner Kadish noted on Attachment A that on the $71 million job 
there are only about three -tenths of one percent in contract 
deficiencies, and they are still negotiable. She assumed that figure 
will be brought down even lower in the attorney's negotiations. 

Commissioner Kadish asked for a report on the status of maps of 
underground systems and how they will reduce the impact on future 
contracts. She also asked to see these maps. 

The following items were unanimously adopted. 

4. Resolution Approving Lease Specifications and Authorizing Director to 
Bid a Toy Shop Concession 

No. 83-0183 Resolution approving lease 

specifications and authorizing 
Director to invite bids for the 
operation of a North Terminal Toy Shop. 

Commissioner Goosby asked Mr. Conrad if he had discussed the bid 
specifications with prospective bidders before they were developed. 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 6 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Mr. Conrad responded that the Hasbro Toy Company approached staff 
regarding a toy shop and the specifications were discussed with them. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if Mr. Conrad had discussed them with small 
toy companies. 

Mr. Conrad responded that he had not. 

Mr. Conrad told the Commission that the toy shop will be located next 
to the game room. 

Commissioner Kadish questioned the item in the bid specifications 
which reads: "the concession shall be staffed at all times by the 
number of employees required to reasonably serve the public." She 
was curious as to who decides the number of employees. 

Mr. Conrad agreed that it was an ambiguous statement and that staff 
was attempting to ensure that a sufficient number of clerks would be 
on duty to serve the customers. 

Commissioner Kadish said that should be tied down. 

Commissioner Goosby said he hoped this would be accomplished without 
making the concessionaire spend money needlessly. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked Mr. Conrad how he arrived at the 20 
percent mentioned in the specifications. 

Mr. Conrad, responding that there were not many toy shop operations 
at airports, said the 20 percent was arrived at by surveying other 
gift shop operations and looking at the mark-up of merchandize at 
this airport. He said the toy mark-up is double the wholesale price. 

Mr. Conrad said the other consideration was what the other tenants 
are paying. Over the past couple of years staff has tried to match, 
percentage wise, new rentals to existing rentals of other 
concessionaires in the Airport. 

Mr. Conrad said he would make the revision suggested by Commissioner 
Kadish. 



5. Approval of Relocation of Northwest Airlines from South Terminal to 
Central Terminal. 

No. 83-0184 Resolution authorizing the Director to 

execute a letter of understanding 
between the City and Northwest 
Airlines providing for the relocation 
of Northwest from the South Terminal 
to the Central Terminal, with options 
in the City to relocate some or all of 
Northwest's traffic back to the South 
Terminal in the event of overcrowding 
in the Central Terminal due to 
substantially increased international 
traffic. 



6. Award of Lease of Plot 9A and Cargo Building 6 to Northwest Airlines 

No. 830-0185 Resolution awarding a lease of 

approximately 7.57 acres of improved 
land at San Francisco International 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 7 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Airport commonly known as Plot 9A and 
Cargo Building 6, for a period of 20 
years commencing August 15, 1983, for 
an intial rental of $747,468 per year. 



Modification No. 4 to Professional Services Agreement with Crothall 
Systems West. 

No. 83-0187 To provide a one-time cost to 

inventory and to enter equipment in 
Preventative Maintenance System for 
the following: Central Terminal, 
Connectors and Boarding Area "D" and 
other newly constructed Airport 
Structures . 

Total Cost $81,500.00 

Commissioner Bernstein asked how staff arrived at the $81,500 amount. 

Mr. Bouey responded that it was arrived at by taking the amount of 
money that would have to be spent on developing each of the five 
phases of the program. The predetermining factor is the amount of 
equipment that has to be surveyed and the amount of preventive 
maintenance that has to be scheduled for each one of those pieces of 
equipment. Crothall has taken some walk-throughs in an effort to 
estimate the number of pieces of equipment that must be inventoried. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked if staff members were being trained to 
eventually take over this task. 

Mr. Bouey responded that the Commission was under the opinion that by 
February, 1983, staff would be able to take over the entire operation 
but the reality of the situation is that staff will not be able to. 
However, about six or seven weeks ago he began talks with Crothall to 
lease their software and to determine if it was compatible with the 
BS90 the Airport was getting. He said it is possible for someone to 
be trained to run the entire operation with the exception of the 
actual structuring of the work that needs to be done. 

Mr. Bouey told the Commission that it would be uneconomical to have a 
person at the Airport that is an expert on every piece of equipment. 
He explained that there were two ways of handling this. First, when 
new equipment is turned over to the Airport it would come with a 
preventive maintenance program that would be programmed into the 
computer. If this does not prove feasible, this one aspect can be 
continued with Crothall. 

Mr. Bouey told the Commission that staff will come up with another 
way to deliver what the Commission thought they were getting and that 
it will be done at the lowest cost possible. 

Commissioner Goosby recommended that the motion include instructions 
for the development of competence in handling the work orders. 

Mr. Bouey said that he would like to come back before the Commission 
in six months and present alternatives, their costs and a 
recommendation. He explained that since the contract expires in 
February, 1985, a decision on how the program will be run must be 
made very soon. If it turns out that staff will program it, then the 
expertise must be bought on a one-time basis and someone will be 
trained to do it. However, the Commission should decide if there are 
alternate ways of handling it. 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 8 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Mr. Bouey told the Commission that Crothall has trained staff to 
administer the program as it is presented to the Airport. This 
includes how to run cost history on equipment, to whom and how the 
work will be portioned out, and how to feed a schedule back into the 
system when it can't be met. They have not trained staff to run the 
computer or software. 

Commissioner Fleishell commented that when he voted for this he 
thought the existing equipment would be inventoried and that a system 
would be set up to deal with future acquired equipment. He thought 
the equipment was being purchased and staff was being trained but all 
that has happened is that we have switched from no maintenance to 
being constantly in the clutches of a company that is telling staff 
how to do their job. He felt that this is not a complicated 
procedure and that staff can handle it. 

Mr. Bouey agreed with Commissioner Fleishell and said that he is 
trying to move away from the company. The program is not overly 
complicated or beyond staff's capability and he feels it can be done 
by February, 1985. 



Passenger Information System - Authorization to Issue Request for 
Proposals. 

Resolution approving issuance for 
Request for Proposals to design, 
fabricate and install an information 
directory system for the Terminal 
Building Complex. 

Mr. Turpen told the Commission that staff was prepared to recommend, 
as a concept, a stationary "You Are Here" system. He said it is 
important to have some sort of "You Are Here" system on the upper 
level to direct passengers to airlines and concessions. There is a 
recommendation for approximately 50 free-standing kiosks to be 
located throughout the terminal facility. 

Commissioner Goosby asked why requests for proposals were solicited 
instead of putting it out to bid. 

Mr. Turpen responded that requests for proposals would give the 
Commission more latitude in terms of the esthetics and information 
input . 

Commissioner Goosby commented that except for the design it is fairly 
cut and dry. He felt that the design could be handled through a 
request for proposals but the construction could be bid. 

Commissioner Kadish said Commissioner Goosby 's point was a valid 
one. She felt the design consultants should have a part in working 
up the design specifications. She also felt that the number of 
kiosks was arbitrarily chosen and this concerned her. She asked for 
an explanation as to how that number was chosen and where they would 
be placed and further recommended a map of kiosk locations be 
submitted. Commissioner Kadish also suggested that staff first 
explore how many kiosks were needed then obtain costs from those 
submitting proposals. 

Commissioner Fleishell felt the design should come first. 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 9 



Pol Op (Continued) 

Commissioner Kadish said staff should submit information to the 
Commission before proposals are requested. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if it was still the Commission's desire 
to continue the no advertising policy on the kiosks. 

Mr. Turpen said that since it was existing Commission policy staff 
would adhere to it, absent any objection from the Commission. 

Commissioner Kadish asked that the no advertising policy be upheld. 

Commissioner Goosby asked for a copy of the policy. 

Mr. Turpen reminded the Commission that in 1979 they approved a 
standard kiosk. 

The following items were unanimously adopted. 

10. Declaration of Emergency and Authorizing Emergency Repairs. 

No. 83-0188 A Declaration of Emergency and 

authorization of emergency repairs to 
repair damaged electrical lines which 
provide permanent electrical power to 
the South Connector. Repairs to be 
done at cost not-to-exceed $40,000. 

11. Rental Credit to Mercury International - Traveler's Aid Society Kiosks 

No. 83-0189 Resolution authorizing rental credit 

to Mercury International in an amount 
not-to-exceed $18,000 to construct 
Traveler's Aid Society Kiosks. 



G. CONSENT CALENDAR OF ROUTINE ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS: 



The following items were unanimously adopted: 

12. Bid Call - Airport Contract No. 1336 

Emergency Airfield Pavement Repairs, 1983-84 

No. 83-0190 Resolution approving and authorizing 

the Director of Airports to call for 
Bids for Airport Contract No. 1336,

1983-84. 

The work involves performing urgent 
repairs of deteriorated Airfield 
pavements which were over and beyond 
the capability of our maintenance 
forces. The emergency repairs are on 
an as-needed basis at anytime 
including week-ends and holidays. 

Contract time is 365 calendar days. 



Minutes, June 21, 1983, Page 10 



Consent (Continued) 

13. Recision of Resolution Nos. 82-0346 thrugh 82-0354, Providing for

make certain modifications to Lease

Northwest, China Airlines, CP Air, 
Lufthansa, Japan Airlines, Philippine

14. Participation in Senior Executive Program at Harvard University. 

No. 83-0192 Authorization is requested for Dennis 

P. Bouey to attend the National 
Program for Senior Executives at 
Harvard University during the period 
July 8, through July 30, 1983. 

15. Professional Services Agreement 
Hales Testing Laboratories 

No. 83-0193 Preliminary investigation, roofing 

deterioration - North Terminal 
Building. 

Contract time, not to exceed 120 days 
after certification by Controller. 

Cost $3,200.00 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if there was a guarantee. 

Mr. Turpen responded that this started about a year ago with the 
cracking of the elastomer ic membrane. He said there are several 
theories as to what caused this, including inadequate architectural 
design and inadequate construction. Nothing has been proven up to 
this point so a professional look at the roof is needed to come up 
with a final determination. He said the leaks have been stopped but 
it is a continuing problem. 

Commissioner Coblentz said the statute of limitations should be kept 
in mind. 

Commissioner Kadish said that when a consultant is chosen the 
Commission should know what the bids were and be informed as to the 
qualifications by which the consultant was selected. 

16. Approval of Right-of-Way Agreement for San Francisco Foreign Flag 
Carriers Corporation in the Central Terminal. 

No. 83-0194 Resolution approving and authorizing

A. CALL TO ORDER: 

The regular meeting of the Airports Commission was called to order at 2:08 
p.m. in Room 282, City tell, San Francisco, CA 



B. ROLL CALL: 

Present: Commissioners Morris Bernstein, 

William K. Coblentz, Z. L. Goosby, J. 
Edward Fleishell. 

Commissioner Ruth S. fedish arrived at 
2:40 p.m. 



C. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

1. Progress Report on the 1-380 Highway Construction Program 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, explained that this report was 
merely a review of the plan to restructure the Airport interchange. 
He said this was a four-phase project: the interchange itself, the 
North and Southbound connections to 280 and 380, and, the portion of 
the highway interchange into the United maintenance base. 

Construction of the first phase is scheduled to begin in the Spring 

of 1984 and is anticipated to take two-years. The entire interchange 

project should be completed by the end of 1986. This project is 
under the auspices of CalTrans. 



2. SFIA Limousine Booth Use 



Report on proposed use of limousine 
booths for ground transportation sales 
and customer representation at SFIA. 



Minutes, July 19, 1983, Page 1 



Director's Report (Continued) 



Mr. Turpen explained that this report is in response to a letter 
byMr. Crloff requesting that existing Airport limousine operators act 
as agents for all ground transportation. The report outlines Why 
this is not the most prudent alternative. It is staff's suggestion 
that the concept of manned booths, especially by existing operators 
acting as agents, be tabled and that the bus service display cases 
and the new computerized display be pursued. 

Commissioner Goosby felt the limousine service should be bid. 



D. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

There were no items initiated by commissioners. 



AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 
The following item was unanimously adopted. 

3. Resolution Modifying the Subvention Paid to SFIA Medical Group 

No. 83-0196 Resolution modifying the subvention 

paid to the SFIA Medical Group for the 
24-hour operation of the Airport 
Medical Clinic. 

The following was put over to the next meeting: 

4. Contract No. 1013 - Computerized Parking Control System: 
Modification of Cerand Contract 

Resolution authorizing Cerand & 
Company to perform additional Phase II 
and Phase III work on rebid of 
Contract 1013. Previously certified 
funds from original Cerand contract to 
be specifically allocated to this 
portion of work. No additional cost 
to the City. 

Mr. Turpen said this concerns the rejection of bids for Contract 
1013. It authorizes an additional $15,000 for phases two and three. 
The item is before the Commission for discussion and is presented 
without a recommendation. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked Mr. Cerand if he wished to address the 
Commission and he responded that he did not, but was available to 
answer any questions. 

Commissioner Fleishell said he intended to vote no on this item; that 
he was against hiring a consultant to do what he felt staff was 
qualified to do. The consultant was hired to put together a 
technical specification and a bid document that would achieve a 
viable bid. The bid document was so ambiquous as to warrant the City 
Attorney's recommendation to reject all bids or risk litigation. He 



Minutes, July 19, 1983, Page 2 



Pol Op (Continued) 



said it was the consultant's responsibility to make certain that the 
language added by staff did not complicate the bid. This additional 
expense is the responsibility of the consultant. 

Commissioner Goosby commented that it was his understanding that the 
technical specifications were not the problem but rather it was the 
ambiguity of the language. He asked if the revisions could be 
handled by staff. 

Mr. Sheldon Fein, Landside Operations, replied that there were 
several items that staff has discussed with the City Attorney. Staff 
is also working with Mr. Cerand on the technical specs. The problem 
is that bidders are required to resubmit technical shop drawings and 
staff does not have the technical expertise to review them. 

Commissioner Bernstein agreed with Commissioner Fleishell and said 
that he, too, would vote no. 

Mr. Turpen recommended putting the item over in view of the 
Commission's comments and his own concerns. 

Commissioner Fleishell, commenting on the substantive bid, said that 
when equipment is purchased efforts should be made to avoid being 
locked into maintenance contracts; that schematics of electronics 
should be obtained and there should be legal assurance of the 
continuity of the manufacture of replacement parts. 



The following item was unanimously adopted. 

5. Design Review Approval of Host's North Terminal Ice Cream/ Cookie 
Parlor Refurbishment 

No. 83-0197 Resolution approving the design of the 

refurbishment of the North Terminal 
Ice Cream/Cookie Parlor as approved by 
the Design Review Committee. 

Mr. TUrpen commented that he conveyed the Commission's concerns to 
Host and asked that a representative from Host be present. (There 
was no representation from Host. ) 

Mr. Jason Yuen, Administrator, Bureau of Planning and Construction, 
showed schematics to the Commission and offered a brief explanation. 

Commissioner Goblentz asked what the time frame was and if approval 
was subject to the amendments. 

Mr. Skip Conrad, Airport Property Management, responded that Host 
said it would take 90 days. 

The following item was put over to the closed session: 

6. local Share Support for the South San Francisco Noise Insulation 
Project ($222,100) 

Resolution providing for $222,100 
Capital Fund expenditure to provide 
the 20 percent local share support to 
the South San Francisco Noise 
Insulation Project in exchange for 
noise easements from property owners 
of insulated buildings 



Minutes, July 19, 1983, Page 3

Contract 1275A, Relocation of Utilities, Lower Level Roadway, to 
Jordan/ Avent & Associates. 

This project is the first of two 
projects to relocate utilities in the 
lower level loop road of the terminal 
complex from the existing subgrade to 
a new pile supported structure. 



The following item was unanimously adopted: 

9. Approval of "Tenant Improvement Guide Supplement No. 1"

No. 83-0205 



D. ANNOUNCEMENT BY SECRETARY: 



In accordance with the Brown Act, 
Section 54957.1, Jean Caramatti, 
Commission Secretary, announced the 
unanimous adoption of Resolution 
83-0104 authorizing the settlement of 
a claim by Robert W. Irwin for 
$17,072.09 at the closed session of 
July 19, 1983. 



Minutes, August 2, 1983, Page 1 



E. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 



1. Valet Parking - April to June 1983 

Report covering the three-month period 
from April to June 1983 on valet 
parking service as requested by the 
Commission. 

Mr. Turpen, Airport Director, said that this was the quarterly report 
on valet parking. He told the Commission that it continues to make 
money, with an average monthly profit of approximately $1,600. 

Mr. Turpen said the next report will be given at the first meeting in 
November. He asked the Commission if they wanted to continue with 
these quarterly reports or if they would like to be informed only if 
it falls below the profit level. 

Commissioner Kadish recommended keeping the quarterly reports with an 
indication as to how valet parking is going. 

2. Policy on Subleasing by Airlines 

Report on policy and practices of 
subleasing by airlines at Airport. 

Mr. Turpen said this reflects Commission policy adopted January 1980, 
by resolution No. 80-0003. The Commission policy guidelines call for 
staff to analyze subleases and bring them before the Commission at 
cost plus a reasonable administrative charge added by the airlines. 
He said this is consistent with what has gone on in the past and he 
felt that it reflects what the Commission had in mind when the policy 
was adopted in 1980. 

Commissioner Kadish said there is an additional policy which 
specifically states that administrative charges may not be more than 
10 percent rather than the 15 percent indicated in staff's memo. 

Commissioner Kadish asked who set the industry standard in the 
statement "common industry practice includes certain administrative 
costs..." She asked for more information on this and commented that 
inasmuch as it refers to the airlines, chances are that the airlines 
set the industry standard. 

Commissioner Kadish requested that all subleases be forwarded to the 
Commission prior to staff acting on them. 

Commissioner Goosby suggested that copies of policies be provided for 
the Commission when they are referred to in correspondence. 

Mr. Turpen responded that all subleases are forwarded to the 
Commission for approval but that no sublease is calendared until it 
meets the 15 percent criteria. 

Mr. Turpen also remarked that he recalls the criteria to be 10 
percent and will ask staff to do further research on this. He told 
the Commission that copies of the original policy will be provided at 
the next meeting. 



Minutes, August 2, 1983, Page 2 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Francisco International Airport" 
assigned to Greyhound Rent-A-Car by 
Airports Commission Resolution No. 
82-0086 dated April 6, 1983. 

Mr. Turpen told the Commission that Greyhound Rent-A-Car has not been 
operating under the rules and regulations of the Airport. The 
company has failed to respond to staff's written and verbal attempts 
to alter this situation. 

Mr. Turpen said there were a significant number of ground 
transportation operators who daily abide by the Airport's rules and 
regulations. It is unfair to those operators to allow a company to 
unilaterally exercise independent rights. Mr. Turpen asked that 
Greyhound's operating agreement be terminated. 

Mr. Michael Valencia, representative for Greyhound Rent-A-Car, said 
Greyhound will not contest the adoption of the resolution but asked 
that they be granted 30 days in which to remove fixtures and 
equipment from the facility. 

Commissioner Bernstein said that this would mean forfeiture of 
$30,000. 

Mr. Valencia responded that he was aware of that. He said Greyhound 
received the notice of this hearing on Friday and that it did not 
leave him much time to prepare. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airport General Counsel, said the resolution calls 
for termination of the agreement as of midnight tomorrow night and 
Greyhound has requested a 30-day extension. 

Commissioner Bernstein said that would not be a problem. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that Mr. Valencia said Greyhound was 
not informed until Friday yet the letter was dated July 20. 

Mr. Valencia responded that the July 20 letter did not make reference 
to the action that would be taken today. 

Commissioner Goosby said they were given written notification on May 
11 that they were in violation of the agreement. Prior to that date, 
the manager was given verbal notification of the violation. 

Mr. Turpen said that Greyhound will cease operation, in accordance 
with the Commission resolution, at 11:59 p.m. on August 3 and that a 
further resolve will be added to the resolution giving Greyhound 30 
days to remove their fixtures, in conformance with the Airport Tenant 
Guide. 



The folowing item was unanimously adopted:

Contractor Amount Bid 

Western Roofing Service $306,442 

The Bryant Organization $308,913 

Alta Roofing Co. $345,287 

California Roofing Co., Inc. $420,000 

Construction time is 40 calendar days. 

Commissioner Kadish asked what the relationship this roofing had to 
the new South Terminal work. 

Mr. Dennis Bouey, Deputy Director, Facilities, Operations and 
Maintenance, responded that this was a continuation of a contract 
that arose out of the Five- Year Plan. The purpose is to review the 
structural integrity of the roof on the South Terminal. The first 
part was to re-roof the main portion of the South Terminal; the 
second part was to infrared the roof to find out what other areas 
were damaged. We are now going back to fix those areas. 

Commissioner Kadish asked if the South Terminal will have to be 
re-roofed a second time when the remodeling takes place. 

Mr. Yuen responded that there will be some work on the roof, however, 
we are two rainy seasons away from that and the leaks should be 
repaired now. 

Mr. Bouey emphasized that this would not replace the entire roof. 
Those leaks that were found through infrared will be repaired as well 
as other areas known to be deficient. In some instances entire 
sections of the roof will have to be pulled up; other areas will 
merely require a coating. There have also been leaks where the piers 
lead into the boarding areas and it must be determined whether the 
leaks are coming from the roof or in through the walls. If the leaks 
are coming through the walls then they will be repaired. 

Mr. Bouey said they were trying to avoid a repetition of the 
situation TWA had with the entire roof structure blowing away. 

Mr. Turpen said the Airport took over responsibility for all of the 
South Terminal when the Lease and Use Agreement was signed. Many of 
the areas, especially the TWA and Western areas, had previously been 
tenant responsibilities. There had been tenant expansion in those 
areas and the roofing materials were not of the highest quality so 
those sections had to be replaced. 

Commissioner Kadish suggested that since the Commission is not 
unanimous on this issue the resolution be adopted, pending the 
agreement of the Commission's architectural consultant that this work 
is required. 

Commissioner Goosby suggested that the cheapest temporary repair 
feasible be looked at, with the major re-roofing to come with the 
renovation of the South Terminal.

13. Travel Request 

Resolution authorizing one staff 
member to attend AOCI 36th Annual 
Conference meeting October 16-21, 1983 
in Vancouver, Canada. 

Commissioner Bernstein said the Commission never receives any reports 
on travel and that the administration is opposed to staff attending 
most of these conferences. He asked who was going and what the 
conference was about. 

Mr. Turpen said either he or one of the Deputies would attend and 
explained that this is the annual AOCI conference of all airport 
managers that to his knowledge, any senior staff member attending a 
conference has filed a report with the Commission. 

Mr. Turpen said this was an opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and 
establish a rapport with other airport operators. 

Commissioner Kadish agreed with Mr. Turpen and said she felt it was 
important that the Airport participate. She reminded Commissioner 
Bernstein that he had told her that staff should be in contact with 
other airports to obtain information. She felt that attending these 
conferences offers staff the opportunity to meet other airport 
operators and establish the rapport that will enable them to call and 
receive information more quickly. 

Commissioner Goosby agreed with Commissioner Kadish.

SPECIAL ITEM: 



Election of Officers 

No. 83-0258 

Commissioner Bernstein was unanimously elected President with a 
nomination and second by Commissioners Fleishell and Coblentz, 
respectively. 

Commissioner Coblentz was unanimously elected Vice President with a 
nomination and second by Commissioners Fleishell and Kadish, 
respectively. 



F. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

The following item was put over to the September 20 meeting. 

2. Disability Benefits for Airport Police Officers 

Report regarding the concept of 
disability pay benefits for Airport 
Police Officers. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if this would put Airport police officers 
on a par with San Francisco police officers. 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, said it would, however, there are 
some significant differences between the two plans. He said there is 
a seven- day lead time before benefits begin. Mr. Turpen explained 
that the exception to this would be if a police officer is injured 
while on duty and goes directly into a hospital. In that event, the 
Retirement Board would authorize benefits from the first day. 
Additionally, there would be several levels of review, beginning with 
the department and ending with the Retirement System, before any 
benefits could be paid. 

Mr. Turpen said that benefits would not go on for more than a year 
and the program itself was designed for a one-year trial basis to 
determine the impact. No money has been budgeted, feeling that 
incidental absenteeism from non-assault disability injuries can be 
absorbed by the existing police officer force. 

Commissioner Goosby asked about this type of coverage for other City 
employees . 

Mr. Turpen responded that they are covered by workmen's compensation. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that state law requires meet and confer 
sessions and that normally this would be part of the negotiations of 
such a session. He felt this should be part of the negotiating 
package if there is to be a memorandum of understanding with the 
Police Department. 

Mr. Turpen said that the Airport police recently elected to be 
self -represented and severed their relationship with Local 400. They 
have since been involved in initial meet and confer sessions with 
members of the Airport staff to generate a memorandum of 
understanding to present to the Commission. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if the Police Department wanted to 
independently negotiate with the Airport and then have the Airport 
present the package to the City. 

Minutes, September 6, 1983, Page 4 



Director's Reports (Continued) 



Ms. JoAnn Auerbach, Airport Personnel Director, said that there are 
two types of negotiations in the City. One is with the Board of 
Supervisors, the other is with the Department. The Board has Charter 
authority to negotiate certain items and, in turn, gives the 
Department the authority to negotiate items dealing with working 
conditions, such as, hours of employment, definitions of senority, 
and working conditions regarding work assignments. 

Commissioner Goosby said he agreed with Commissioner Fleishell. He 
said he would like to see the entire package before action is taken. 
He asked if the Police Department was the only group to request 
individual negotiations. 

Ms. Auerbach responded that they were the only group to request it so 
far. 

Commissioner Kadish said it would be helpful if all the background 
material, dating back to May, 1982, be included in the package. 

Mr. Turpen said that that information would be forthcoming at the 
next meeting, as well as the status of the negotiations. 



The following item was adopted by a 3-1 vote with Commissioner Goosby 
casting the dissenting vote. 



Report Concerning the Proposal for Commercial Advertising in the 
Tunnels Between the Garage and the Terminals. 

No. 83-0250 Resolution rescinding resolution No. 

83-0103 dated April 5, 1983. 

Mr. Turpen said that at one point some thought was given to tunnel 
advertising. He understood that at the last meeting the Commission 
voiced some concerns about this and said it was really a matter of 
what policy the Commission wishes to effect with respect to tunnel 
advertising. 

Commissioner Kadish asked Mr. Turpen what he meant by "develop it a 
little further". She said that when the Commission gave its approval 
last April 5 they asked staff to develop a proposal and intended the 
development to be in-house. However, staff went beyond the 
development of a proposal and involved potential advertisers. 

Commissioner Goosby disagreed, saying that when the Commission 
approves something staff should be entitled to go to outside 
sources. He said the more people they talk to the more enlightened 
the bid specs will be. He felt the Commission is tying staff's hands 
in not allowing them to consult with outside sources to gather 
information and, as a result, the Commission is put at a disadvantage, 

Commissioner Kadish proposed that the no-advertising policy adopted 
in 1978 by resolution number 78-0125 be upheld and that the 
investigation of advertising at the Airport cease. 

Mr. Turpen said that if that was the Commission's wish he recommended 
rescinding resolution 83-0103, and the policy adopted in 1978 will 
remain in effect. 

Commissioner Goosby said that it was his understanding that 
advertising in the tunnels could bring in about $250,000 in revenue 
to the Airport. He asked if the tunnels were in use when the policy 
was adopted in 1978. 



Minutes, September 6, 1983, Page 5 



Director's Reports (Continued) 

Mr. Turpen responded that the tunnels leading to the Central and 
South Terminals were operating. 

Commissioner Goosby said he understood the Commission's concerns 
about advertising in the terminals but felt that advertising in the 
tunnels could be handled tastefully. He wanted to go on record as 
being against the motion. 

Commissioner Flei shell agreed that the area by the elevators is stark 
looking and that other airports have used those areas to display 
children's art. He realizes that since there is no security in that 
area you cannot place anything of value there, but, he said airline 
posters depicting other areas of the world could be framed and hung 
in that area. 

Commissioner Fleishell felt that all of the time and and money spent 
to achieve a particular ambience for the Airport would be wasted if 
advertising were allowed in the tunnels. 

Commissioner Kadish agreed with Commissioner Fleishell and felt that 
the tunnels leading into the Airport are an introduction to what 
people are going to come to and there should not be too great a 
contrast. She said that Jason Yuen and his staff greatly improved 
the appearance of the connector between the Central and South 
Terminals. 

Commissioner Kadish said that resolution 78-0125 is more specific to 
the North terminal and asked if at the next meeting it should be made 
broader so that it would pertain to the entire Airport. 



A resolution was unanimously adopted calling for a study of 
alternatives to provide free luggage carts in the Customs arrival 
area and of a modified "L" design. 

4. Luggage Carts - International Arrivals Area 

No. 83-0251 Update on operation of luggage cart 

rentals by Smarte Carte, Inc., in 
International Terminal arrivals area. 

Mr. Turpen said he has talked with Commissioner Fleishell about the 
shape of the carts and has heard complaints from passengers about the 
charge. He reminded the Commission that in June or July of this year 
Smarte Carte made a presentation at which time the Commission 
discussed putting carts in the Central Terminal on a pay-as-you-go 
basis for one year. A progress report was to be given the Commission 
in October. He said some glaring deficiencies have been pointed out 
and the Airport has received commitments from Smarte Carte to amend 
their practices in order to provide the service to the traveling 
public. 

Commissioner Fleishell said he has always opposed carts for hire in 
the International Terminal. He said that Customs agreed to a pay 
cart operation on the assurance that there would be someone present 
to make change, yet, no one is available. 

Commissioner Fleishell also felt that the type of carts currently in 
use are unsuitable for international travel and that customs 
concurred with this. He said he preferred the "L" shape cart and 
that he was assured that they would be provided, however, he has 
since been told that Smarte Carte cannot stack them in their 
dispensers so they will not be used. Commissioner Fleishell felt 
that that was the concessionaire's problem and not the Airports. He 
was also told that unless the concessionaire had the right to have 
carts in the area they would pull out of the Airport. 



Minutes, September 6, 1983, Page 6 



Director's Reports (Continued) 



Commissioner Fleishell told the Commission that since the three 
terminals use identical carts, kids are retrieving the carts from the 
International Terminal and returning them to the North and South 
Terminals for the 25^ refund. He suggested that operations personnel 
be assigned to retrieve the carts. 

Commissioner Kadish agreed with Commissioner Fleishell' s comments. 
She said the letter from Smarte Carte stated that there were too few 
carts and that the memo of recommendations does not indicate the 
number of carts nor does it mention anything on the design change. 
Commissioner Kadish also commented on the recommendation that small 
readable labels be affixed to the cart with the instruction "PULL ME" 
on it and asked in how many languages it would be written. 

Commissioner Kadish questioned the belief that the complaint about 
the $1.00 fee was due to the fact that passengers do not realize the 
carts can be taken beyond Customs. 

She said that staff indicates that Smarte Carte is willing to go 
along with items 5, 6, and 7 listed in the memo but there is no 
information on the first four points or the comments made by 
Commissioner Fleishell and herself. 

Commissioner Kadish felt that the last statement made in the memo 
which indicated that staff would report back to the Commission in 
January, 1984, "after half of the one-year trial has elapsed" is an 
assumption that they go along with the recommendations that have been 
made. She asked for a progress report in one month to see what 
changes have been affected and asked that there be supervision and 
monitoring. She also objected to the term "undercover agent" used 
relative to the investigation and monitoring and asked that it be 
omitted. 

Commissioner Goosby said that staff would profit if the Commission 
made a decision as to whether or not the carts were to be free. 

Commissioner Kadish said she would prefer that they were free. 

Commissioner Fleishell agreed with Commissioner Goosby and said he 
saw no reason to wait until January. He said that at the last 
meeting Mr. Yuen promised to ascertain prices of carts. He felt that 
it might be better to give a clear direction to staff that the carts 
are to be the "L" shape design, they are to be free and that the 
change is to be affected at the earliest possible moment, compatible 
with good operating practices at the Airport. 

Mr. Turpen asked if the Commission wanted the carts retained in the 
Customs area. 

Commissioner Fleishell responded that in most airports carts can be 
taken no further than the curb and that this would involve personnel 
to retrieve the carts and to supervise and the operation. 

Commissioner Kadish felt this is an operational problem that staff 
can solve. 

Commissioner Goosby suggested installing polls at the curb so that 
carts cannot be taken beyond the curb. 

Mr. Turpen said there were a number of operational problems with 
going to another type of cart but they were not insurmountable. 

He said staff would put togher a package providing for free carts, a 
modified design and indicating where the carts can be taken, as well 
as the dollar and legal implications. 

Minutes, September 6, 1983, Page 7 



Director's Reports (Continued) 



Commissioner Kadish said that this does not mean that Smarte Carte 
does not have to effect their changes. 

Mr. Turpen said he would like to get back to the Commission at the 
October 4 meeting with a report on the existing system and a detailed 
review based on the outline given today. 



G. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 



Commissioner Kadish asked that the policy on subleasing which indicates 
that subleasing can be no more than 10 percent above the airlines cost, be 
re-enunciated. She also asked that the search for the policy cease. 



Commissioner Kadish said a report on the re-roofing of the South Terminal 
was never given to the Commission. She said staff was supposed to send it 
to Howard Friedman and she supposed it was still with him. 

Mr. Yuen said that after a review of the scope of the work it was decided 
that Pier A would be re-roofed but not Boarding Area B. Boarding Area B 
will be substantially modified and covered in the architects contracts. 

Mr. Bouey said that the resolution had been adopted with the amendment 
that staff was to proceed on the recommendation of Mr. Friedman and that 
it was not intended for staff to report back to the Commission on this 
item. 

Mr. Bouey also told the Commission that when the roofing design was 
transferred to Engineering from the Bureau of Planning and Construction it 
did not provide for the walls to be rebuilt. He said that the Commission 
was correct in its judgment and would probably save the Airport money in 
the long run. 



Commissioner Kadish said that about a month ago Commissioner Goosby asked 
for information about the space vacated by the Medical Clinic but the 
Commission has not yet received a report from staff. 

Ms. Angela Gittens, Deputy Director for Business and Finance, replied that 
staff was re-evaluating that area. She said that although Host was not 
interested in that area for the use the Airport wished, there is a 
possibility that Host may take part of the space and the reminder would be 
used for another concept. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that if Host gives up its right to a 
particular area the Airport should capitalize on it in order to spread the 
investment opportunities in the broader spectrum in the community. 

Mr. Turpen commented that staff is looking for alternatives designed to 
achieve maximum utilization of the space. He said staff would expand on 
these alternatives at the next meeting so that the Commission can make a 
decision. 



Minutes, September 6, 1983, Page 8 



Items Initiated by Commissioners (Continued) 



Commissioner Fleishell said AB 537 is on the Governor's desk and 
recommended a letter be sent from the Commission urging him to sign the 
legislation. 

Commission Kadish seconded Commissioner Fleishell 's recommendation. 

Commissioner Goosby thanked Commissioner Fleishell for his efforts and 
said that letters should be sent to those individuals who have given their 
assistance. 



H. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICIES OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 



The following item was put over to the October 4 meeting. 

5. San Francisco International Airport Vending Machine Policy - Terminal 
Building Complex. 

Resolution establishing a vending 
machine policy for Terminal Building 
Complex . 

Mr. Turpen said this item was discussed at length at the last meeting 
and asked for the Commission's approval. 

Commissioner Kadish said she could approve it in principle but not in 
detail. She felt that some of the qualifications were too broad and 
a number of the statements were unclear. She cited use of the phrase 
"as much as is possible" and comments such as "should be located only 
in areas in which there is a demonstrated need for the product", not 
indicating how or to whom it has been demonstrated, and "certain 
things should be limited", not indicating to what number or how that 
determination should be made. She also commented that there is no 
requirement for Design Review Committee approval. Commissioner 
Kadish said the word "cigarette" should replace the word "candy". 
She also noted that the Commission-required statement indicating that 
stamp vending machines sell stamps at face value was missing. 

Commissioner Goosby felt that the resolution should be refined before 
a vote is taken.

Minutes, September 20, 1983, Page 3 



E. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 



Status of Meet and Confer Sessions with Airport Police Officers 
Association. 

Report on background and current 
status of meet and confer sessions 
with the Airport Police Officers 
Association to develop a Memorandum of 
Understanding . 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, said that in January, 1983, the 
Board of Supervisors amended the City's Employee Relations ordinance 
which allowed the Airport Police to be self-representing as opposed 
to being represented by Local 400. He said that the Miles Milias 
Brown Act requires that the employer and the bargaining unit meet and 
confer in good faith and that in addition to meeting with the Airport 
the bargaining unit also meets with the City's Employee Relations 
Department . 

Mr. Turpen said that in June, 1983, Mr. Alan Davis, attorney 
representing the Police Officers' Association, provided the Airport 
with a draft memorandum of understanding. There have been meetings 
between the Chief of the Airport Police, the Director of Personnel 
and members of the POA concerning the new bargaining unit and, as was 
the Commission's desire, the Director of Personnel has been 
instructed to include the Disability Plan in these discussions. 

Mr. Turpen said he would get back to the Commission when he has a 
draft of the agreement and a written report will be submitted after 
the next meeting and all subsequent meetings. 

Commissioner Goosby said that the Commission should receive a list of 
all proposals as the POA presents them to staff. In addition, 
certain broad parameters should be established in closed session by 
which staff can negotiate and when staff goes beyond those parameters 
they again must receive approval from the Commission. He said he 
wanted to see more than just the final negotiated agreement. 

Commissioner Bernstein said that he would vote against it if it only 
comes before him in final form. 

Mr. Turpen told the Commission that the first submission by the POA 
to staff was in June, 1983. He said he would send the Commission the 
original proposal as well as the Airport's counter proposals and will 
keep the Commission informed on a continuing basis. 



F. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

There were no items initiated by Commissioners. 



G. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 
The following items were unanimously adopted. 
2. Bond Trustee and Paying Agent 

No. 83-0260 Resolution authorizing a modification 

in the fee structure for the Bank of 
America's services as Bond Trustee and 
Paying Agent, $20,000. 

Minutes, September 20, 1983, Page 4 



Pol Op (Continued) 

3. Rejection of Bids - Airport Contract No. 1460 
Relocation of Lights at End of Runway 19L 

No. 83-0261 Resolution rejecting all bids for 

Airport Contract No. 1460, Relocation 
of Lights at End of Runway 19L. 

Rejection of bids due to 
non-responsiveness of the low bidder 
and due to second bid being 
substantially above approved project 
budget of $60,000. 

Bids received on August 25, 1983: 

Contractor Amount 

Twisselman Electric $74,112.00 
Coast Electric Company $91,802.00 

4. Professional Services Contract with San Mateo County - $10,000.00 

No. 83-0262 Resolution approving and authorizing 

professional services agreement 
between the City and County of San 
Francisco and San Mateo County wherein 
the County will be an independent 
contractor of the City to advise the 
Commission regarding possible actions 
to be taken to reduce the impact of 
aircraft generated noise on the San 
Mateo County environs. 

Mr. Turpen said that in June, 1982 the Commission authorized staff to 
set aside $10,000 as the Airports contribution to the Airport 
Community Roundtable. At that time, San Mateo County agreed to 
provide $10,000 and the member communities agreed to provide $500 
each for a total budget of $25,000 to hire staff for the Roundtable. 
San Mateo County and the member communites have contributed their 
shares but the $10,000 for the Airport proved to be a problem in 
terms of how to transfer the money. In June, 1982, the Commission 
asked the City Attorney to develop a mechanism whereby this money 
could be transferred to the Roundtable and that mechanism is before 
the Commission in the terms of an agreement for services with San 
Mateo County. Mr. Turpen explained that this was a one-time 
agreement for one year. 

Commissioner Goosby said the agreement does not mention the 
Roundtable. 

Mr. Turpen responded that San Mateo County has agreed to provide 
staff services for the Roundtable and the agreement is with them. 

Commissioner Goosby expressed his apprehension about transferring the 
money to San Mateo County rather than the Roundtable. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airport General Counsel, responded that since the 
Roundtable is not a legal entity this is the only legal way to 
transfer the money. 



Minutes, September 20, 1983, Page 5 



Pol Op (Continued) 

The following item was unanimously adopted as amended. 

5. Professional Services Agreement - Dieter C. Rapp, Interior Planting 
Consultant Modification No. 3 - $43,100 (or less) 

No. 83-0263 Resolution approving Modification No. 

3 to the Professional Services 
Agreement between the City and Dieter 
C. Rapp, Interior Planting Consultant, 
dated June 30, 1980. 

Modification No. 3 continues the 
present agreement until September 30, 
1984, at a cost not to exceed $43,100 
(or less). 

Mr. Turpen responded that the contract in the South Terminal, for 
example, called for providing and maintaining the plants. Although, 
at time it was felt that Airport staff could perform plant 
maintenance, the problem was that the Airport did not have the 
plants. At one time the contract was around $70,000 but has been 
reduced in subsequent years as the scope of work has been reduced. 
The only remaining area is the South Terminal and the contract will 
be reduced accordingly as remodeling takes place. At the end of the 
South Terminal project all of the work will revert to Airport staff. 
Plants will be purchased as part of the construction program and no 
further outside resource would be used. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked if Airport staff was maintaining the 
plants in the North Terminal and said that there were too many ficus 
plants and they were toppling over. 

Mr. Turpen responded that staff was maintaining those plants and the 
problem would be looked into. 

Commissioner Goosby commented that the outline said $43,000 or less 
but the resolution said $26,000. He asked what the $43,000 was for. 

Mr. Turpen said the resolution said "not to exceed $26,000". The 
$43,000 referred to last year's amount. 

Commissioner Goosby asked that a final resolve be added to the 
resolution indicating that upon completion of the South Terminal 
there be only in-house maintenance of plants. 

6. Award of Contract No. 1212 - Medical Clinic, International Terminal 

No. 83-0264 Resolution awarding Contract 1212, 

Medical Clinic, International 
Terminal, to Associated Builders, 
Inc., 89 Dillon Avenue, Campbell, 
California 95008, in the total amount 
of $216,732. 

The award amount is comprised of the 
base bid and all alternates. The 
budget for the recommended 
construction is $250,000.

8. Tenant Improvement: U.S. Postal Service Modifications to Airport 
Mail Facility

No. 83-0267 Resolution awarding Airport Contract 

No. 1338, Silt Removal, 1983 to Cal 
Equipment, 3472 Enterprise Avenue, 
Suite E., Hayward, California 94545,

1983: 

Contractor Amount 

Cal Equipment $27,150.00 

Ferma Corporation $54,900.00 

Construction time is 60 calendar days. 



The following item was put over to the next meeting. 

10. Award of Contract No. 1494 
Emergency Roofing Repairs 

Resolution awarding Contract No. 1494, 
Emergency Roofing Repairs to the 
Bryant Organization, Inc., 3229 San 
Leandro Street, Oakland, California 
94601, in the amount of $101,565.00. 

Construction time is to be terminated 
on June 30, 1984. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked what the repairs were to which the item 
referred. 



Minutes, September 20, 1983, Page 7 



Consent (Continued) 



Mr. Bouey, Deputy Director for Facilities, Operations and 
Maintenance, responded that last year there were a great many roof 
repairs that were needed and staff had great difficulty in finding 
roofers to respond when it was actually raining. The provisions of 
this emergency contract provide for a four-hour response time. 
Additionally, certain portions of the South Terminal roof were going 
to be repaired but it was decided, upon reevaluation, that 
maintenance would be deferred to the Bureau of Planning and 
Construction for a period of two years. He said that leaks will 
occur over that period and it will be essential to get a roofer to 
the site as soon as possible. 

Mr. Bouey told the Commission that the terms of the contract are much 
like the terms of the emergency paving contracts for the runway. He 
said that the $101,565.00 was a ceiling on the amount of money to be 
spent and does not necessarily mean that the entire amount will be 
expended. He also told the Commission that the contract would cover 
any structure at the Airport. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked Mr. Bouey if he was aware of any 
problems with the North Terminal roof. 

Mr. Bouey responded that a roofing consultant was examining the roof 
of the North Terminal per a resolution adopted by the Commission. He 
said his report is due 60 days from yesterday. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked if there were any warranties on the 
North Terminal. 

Mr. Bouey responded that one of the reasons of having the consultant 
examine the roof is to find the defects and ascertain where the 
responsibility lies. 

Commissioner Bernstein said he was unhappy with just one bid. 

Mr. Bouey responded that bid specifications were sent to 16 
companies; six were called and begged to submit bids but this was the 
only one that was received. He added that this bid came in $10,000 
under the estimate. He said that given the rain last year and what 
is anticipated for this year, they were lucky to receive this bid. 

Commissioner Bernstein said he would not vote for a contract with 
only one bid. 

Mr. Bouey repeated that they had sent out 16 bid specifications and 
called at least six of them and each time was told that they did not 
want to be bound to this kind of time. 

Commissioner Coblentz commented that he understood the problem 
because he had trouble finding a roofer for his house. He said that 
with the rain we had last year and with what is anticipated for this 
year he doesn't think he would put in a bid either. 

Mr. Bouey explained to Commissioner Bernstein that the entire amount 
would not be paid out in a lump sum but would be paid on a per unit 
basis for work done. 

Mr. Turpen felt that in view of Engineering's attempts to obtain bids 
and the prospect of facing the winter without a contract he strongly 
recommended adopting the resolution. However, he recommended putting 
the item over if Commissioner Bernstein felt he could not vote for it 
because of the one bid. 



Minutes, September 20, 1983, Page 8 



Consent (Continued) 



The following items were unanimously adopted. 

11. Airport Contract No. 1451 - North Terminal Grease Trap - Modification 
No. 1 (Debit) $1,716.21 

No. 83-0268 Resolution approving and requesting 

the Controller's Certification of 
Debit Modification No. 1 in the amount 
of $1,716.21. The contractor for this 
work is Dalton Construction Company. 

This modification provides for the 
furnishing of all labor, material and 
equipment to excavate and remove from 
the Airport all reinforced concrete 
slab, steel reinforcing bars, wire 
mesh and waste concrete in the 
location where the Grease Trap will be 
installed. 

Original Amount of Contract $39,808.00 
Modification No. 1, Type 2 (Debit) $ 1,716.21 
Revised Amount of Contract $41,524.21 

12. Industry Education Council Handicapped Youth Project 

No. 83-0269 This resolution endorses the San Mateo 

County Industry Education Council's 
efforts in providing for a handicapped 
youth project benefiting San Mateo and 
San Francisco counties. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if this was asking for anything more than 
the Commission's endorsement and approval for Mr. Wilson to serve on 
the Council. 

Mr. Ron Wilson, Director of Community Affairs, responded that this 
was just for the Commission's endorsement of the Council so that the 
program can proceed.

E. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 



1. International Terminal Arrivals Level - Space Development Proposals 

Report analyzing different 
alternatives for the development of 
concession space adjacent to the 
Medical Clinic in the International 
Terminal on the Arrival Level. 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, said that the Commission asked 
staff to take a look at some ideas for the space which will be 
vacated by the Medical Clinic. The memorandum from Business and 
Finance indicates that there are 2000 square feet or five-400 foot 
bays. Staff has indicated that it can be broken down into business 
opportunities requiring small spaces, such as a vending alcove, an 
ice cream/cookie parlor concession, or, a fast food snack operation. 
He said staff is interested in and ready to explore any ideas the 
Commission might have. Mr. Turpen said that staff must first 
determine what the people need on the arrivals level and how they can 
best be served. 

Commissioner Kadish asked how the determination is being made as to 
what will best serve the public in that area. She asked if any 
surveys had been done. 

Commissioner Goosby said it was his understanding that other airports 
did not have food or refreshments in the arrivals area. 

Mr. Turpen said it was his experience and understanding that that was 
true and that perhaps staff should take a survey. He said staff will 
use some of the alternatives listed in the report as well as 
suggestions offered by the Commission in the survey. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if Host would be interested in using a 
portion of the space. 

Angela Gittens, Deputy Director of Business and Finance, said staff 
has not reapproached Host with the suggestion of using a smaller 
portion of the space. She said it was her understanding that Host 
did not want to develop the 1600 square feet that staff originally 
proposed but perhaps they would be more amendable to developing a 
smaller portion. 

Mr. Turpen agreed with Commissioner Kadish that we should first 
decide what we want. He said he would let the Commission know before 
the next meeting as to when the survey will be completed. 



2. Luggage Carts in Customs 

Report on the status of several 
operational conditions for the luggage 
cart service in customs. 

Mr. Turpen said the report is a follow up to staff's original report 
as to the progress made with Smarte Carte in updating the baggage 
cart service in the customs arrivals area. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that the report failed to respond to 
two points that were made at a previous Commission meeting. The 
first is that the words "Pull Me' ! be translated into foreign 
languages. She said that one sign could be posted on the cart 
dispenser rather than on each cart. The other point was that the 
number of carts in that area fell short of what the Commission 
intended. 

Minutes, October 4, 1983, Page 4 



Director's Reports (Continued) 



Mr. Turpen said he would look into both of the concerns and make sure 
staff was responsive to them. 



Study for Free Luggage Carts in Customs 

Progress report on the study for free 
luggage cart system in Customs. 

Mr. Turpen said this was a status report that relates to the question 
of the exclusivity clause. He said the City Attorney was looking at 
that clause, which was part of the contract when it was bid in July, 
1980. The current contract expires in July, 1985. The City Attorney 
should have his opinion ready by the next meeting. 



Commissioner Coblentz requested a report on the status of the carpet 
in the Central Terminal. He said the carpet was a disgrace and asked 
what could be done about it around the seating areas. He also said 
he would like to move that the sale of gum be discontinued in the 
Central Terminal. He felt that because of the difficulty in removing 
gum that the sale of gum be discontinued, at least in the Central 
Terminal. Commissioner Coblentz asked what effect ice cream had on 
the carpet. He asked for a report at the next meeting. 

Mr. Turpen said a report would be ready at the next meeting. 

Commissioner Kadish said that ice cream parlors were to have no 
take-outs except for ice cream cones. She said there were to be no 
take-outs of sodas, sundaes, shakes or coffee. Commissioner Kadish 
asked for an investigation by staff. 

Commissioner Goosby asked that in the process of preparing the report 
staff consider the feasibility of changing the carpeting in the 
seating area. 



Commissioner Kadish asked for some information, either at the next 
meeting or the meeting thereafter, on the meeter/greeter area of the 
International Terminal. She specifically wants to know how the crush 
of people there is being handled as compared to how it is handled 
outside customs in the South Terminal. 



Regarding Airport accounts receivable, Commissioner Kadish asked 
staff to investigate whether all tenants can and should be bonded to 
guarantee collection of receivables. She also asked for staff 
recommendations as to other devices that can be developed to reduce 
the delay in collections. 



Minutes, October 4, 1983, Page 5 



G. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 



The following item was adopted by a 3-1 vote with Commissioner Bernstein 
casting the dissenting vote. 

4. Award of Contract No. 1494 
Emergency Roofing Repairs 

No. 83-0273 Resolution awarding Contract No. 1494, 

Emergency Roofing Repairs to the 
Bryant Organization, Inc., 3229 San 
Leandro Street, Oakland, CA 94601 in 
the amount of $101,565.00. 

The one bid was received on September 
6, 1983. 

Contract is to be terminated on June 
30, 1984. 

Mr. Turpen asked Jason Yuen, Administrator, Bureau of Planning and 
Construction, to come forward and brief the Commission on the effects 
of last week's rainstorm on the Central Terminal. He said a memo to 
the Commission is forthcoming. 

Jason Yuen said that during the rainstorm last Friday about nine 
leaks were discovered. He said that most of the leaks came from 
windows, wall caulking and the old observation decks. He said the 
most serious leak was on the old upper level roadway at the expansion 
joint between slabs, and indicated that the joint is now misaligned 
and twisted. He said there are two options . 

The first option is to go through the normal process of awarding a 
contract and the second is to declare an emergency and award an 
emergency contract. He said that while this is not a life or death 
situation it does do a lot of damage to the building when it rains. 

Mr. Yuen explained that last Friday was worse than unusual because 
the drain in the area was plugged with construction debris. A 
maintenance group cleaned it out but a lot of water still went 
through the building at the front door of the connector. 

Mr. Yuen said this would be a large project because they would like 
to dig out the entire expansion joint and trench drain and rebuild. 
He said he would also like to do the South side even though it is not 
yet leaking because it looks like it might fail at any time. The 
estimated total cost for both sides might be as high as $50,000. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked how long it would take if it were put out 
to bid in the usual manner. 

Mr. Yuen responded that it takes three weeks to bid it, two weeks to 
award the contract, and two weeks to certify it. 

Commissioner Coblentz said Mr. Yuen should go for emergency repairs. 

Commissioner Kadish agreed. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if it could be done in -house. 

Mr. Yuen responded that they don't have time to hire a consultant. 
He felt it could be done in-house. 

Mr. Yuen told the Commission that the caulking was under warranty and 
the contractor would take care of it. He also said that there is a

outside of the valet parking booth. He explained that the roof is 
old and he would like to put out an informal contract to have it

three items. 

6. Rejection of Bid and Authorization for Re-Bid Airport Contract No. 
1521 - Garage Signing Electronic Display Units 

No. 83-0275 Resolution rejecting the sole bid 

submitted by QESCO, INC., 533 Third

Three bids were received on September 
7, 1983: 

1. Western Roofing Service $134,515.00 

2. The Bryant Organization $138,203.00 

3. Alta Roofing Co. $158,270.00 

8. Rejection of Bids and Authorization for Re-Bid

No. 83-0277 Resolution rejecting all bids for 

Contract No. 1536, Lower Level Roof 
Replacement of Maintenance Building 
and authorizing the Director of 
Airports to call for re-bid when ready. 

Alternate Alternate Alternate Alternate

1. The Bryant Organization $190,606.00 $ 3,192.00 $ 809.00 $27,288.00 $ 6,575.00 

2. Western Roofing Service $193,133.00 $ 7,200.00 $4,500.00 $22,950.00 $10,125.00 

The construction budget for this 
contract was $90,000.00. 

Low bid is 111 percent over the 
budget, therefore, it is in the best 
interest of the City to reject both 
bids and to authorize the Director of 
Airports to call for a re-bid when 
ready. 

Commissioner Goosby said that if the difference was a minor one then 
staff should go ahead with it. 

Dennis Bouey, Deputy Director of Facilities, Operations and 
Maintenance, responded that staff gave this a lot of thought and if 
the difference had been minor they would have gone ahead but the bids 
were double what staff estimated. He said that the emergency 
contract may be enough to take care of the leaks. 

Mr. Bouey told the Commission that the airlines are having the same 
problem and said that United estimated work on one of their hangars 
at $6.00 per square foot yet the lowest bid came in at $12.00 per 
square foot. 

Mr. Bouey said that he would rather take a chance for a year than 
spend $150,000 that he might not otherwise have to spend. 

9. Contracts - Bidders' Security 

No. 83-0278 This agenda item concerns a proposed 

amendment to Section 6.19 of the San 
Francisco Administrative Code as it 
pertains to the acceptable form of 
security submitted with a bid on a 
construction contract. The proposed 
amendment would allow as appropriate 
security for the bid an irrevocable 
letter of credit in an amount of 10 
percent of the bid amount.

10. One-Year Time Extension, Airport Parking Management Contract 

No. 83-0279 A Commission Resolution approving a 

one-year extension of the management 
contract with APM to operate the 
Airport's parking facilities from 
December 1, 1983 to November 30, 
1984. This is the third of four (4) 
one-year time extension options under 
Section 9 of the original contract. 

The following item was put over. 

11. Policy Statement on Commercial Advertising 

Resolution approving the policy 
statement for commercial advertising 
in the Terminal Building Complex and 
Public Parking Garage. 

Commissioner Kadish asked that the item be put over because not all 
the material was included in the package. 

The following item was unanimously adopted. 

12. Reimbursable Agreement with Federal Aviation Administration - 
Relocation of FAA Equipment and Cables - Not to Exceed $350,116. 

No. 83-0280 Resolution approving the Reimbursable 

Agreement with Federal Aviation 
Administration for the City to 
reimburse costs for relocation of FAA 
equipment and cables because of 
extension of Taxiways A and B under 
Airport Contract No. 788. 

The following item was put over. 

13. Passenger Information System - "You Are Here" Kiosks 

Resolution approving contract 
specifications and authorizing staff 
to invite proposals to design a 
Passenger Information System for "You 
Are Here" kiosks within the Terminal 
Building Complex. 

Mr. Turpen said staff, at one point, had come before the Commission 
and suggested that 50 static, non-illuminated displays be placed in 
the Airport. The Commission suggested that requests for proposals be 
solicited giving the perspective agencies the basic criteria. This 
package concerns that, with some minor exceptions. In the cover 
letter, as Commissioner Kadish pointed out, the statement that the 
proposed system entails up to 50 kiosks is incorrect. The specific 
position of the Commission was that the potential consultant would 
examine the Airport, examine passenger flows and make a 
recommendation as to the number of proposed kiosks. Additionally, as 
part of that earlier conversation, the concept of the Airports 
approved kiosk was discussed. Mr. Turpen showed the Commission the 
prototype that was proposed and presented to the Commission a couple 



Minutes, October 4, 1983, Page 9 



Pol Op (Continued) 



of years ago. This system will be offered, as well as the table-top 
system which is used in the North Terminal, to those companies that 
will prepare proposals so that they might consider this system as 
well as the one designed by Landor. The problem with the Landor 
system, as pointed out by Commissioner Kadish, was that it had to be 
dismantled in order to be changed. Mr. Turpen said that this did not 
preclude some modification of the system in order to make it more 
easily accessible for maintenance. 

Mr. Turpen said that with those changes, and any other changes the 
Commission might suggest, staff would propose this for a request for 
proposals, to consider this as well as the North Terminal, and any 
other design submitted by bidders. 

Mr. Turpen said that since the airlines moved around so quickly in 
the last couple of years the system in the North Terminal had to be 
abandoned because it had to be dismantled every time a change had to 
be made. He said there is no method of telling passengers where they 
are in relation to certain airport amenities. He explained that this 
is particularly important upstairs where restaurants, concessions and 
airlines need to be identified. 

Commissioner Kadish said Mr. Turpen responded to all of her points 
and thanked him. She said that there are a lot of changes that have 
to be made in this item and suggested that it be adopted in 
principle, anticipating that those changes would be made. 

Mr. Turpen suggested that the item be brought back to the Commission 
after the changes have been made. 

Commissioner Kadish said that the graphic system for the kiosks 
should tie in with the existing graphic system and that the contract 
should be divided into two parts rather than as stated on page two of 
the memo. 

Mr. Turpen said this would be a two-phase proposal. The first phase 
would solicit proposals, rank order them and submit them to the 
Commission with staff's suggestion of a recommended alternative. If 
the Commission agreed, staff would proceed to phase two which 
includes the construction and installation of a static kiosk system. 



H. CONSENT CALENDAR OF ROUTINE ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS: 



The following items were unanimously adopted. 

14. Design Review Approval - Remodeling of North Terminal News and Gift 
Shops 

No. 83-0281 Resolution approving the design and 

remodeling of North Terminal News and 
Gift shops, operated by A. B.C. Cigar 
Co. 

Commissioner Coblentz said that on September 19 he wrote to Mr. 
Turpen regarding questions that had been raised about A. B.C. Cigar 
Co. and the competition with the proposed toy concession. He said he 
has not received a response, and, that he was confused because the 
toy shop would be selling some of the same merchandize and he thought 
A. B.C. had an exclusive. 



Minutes, October 4, 1983, Page 10 



Consent (Continued) 



Mr. Turpen said this improvement was the result of some prior 
negotiations with A. B.C. in terms of their up-grading of the facility. 

With respect to the toy shop, Mr. Turpen said the letter has been 
referred to Business and Finance and it is his understanding that 
staff is looking at the viability of continuing with the cookie shop 
concept instead of a toy shop in view of the potential competitive 
nature and erosion of Airport revenue. 

Commissioner Coblentz commented that when a franchise is given, money 
is expended based on that franchise, and it is not fair to undercut. 

15. Design Review Approval - International Terminal Candy Store Signage 

No. 83-0282 Resolution approving design and 

installation of exterior signage over 
Skyline Candy Store in International 
Terminal .

19. Emergency Management Training, November 1-4, 1983

training sessions and a one-half day 
earthquake exercise. 

Total costs are $2,800.00.

Minutes, October 18, 1933, Page 3 



E. SPECIAL ITEM: 

The following resolution was unanimously adopted. 

1. Certificate of Compliance 

No. 83-0292 "Certificate of Compliance" for 

airlines operating from San Francisco 
International Airport with FAR Part 
36-Quiet Aircraft. 

Mr. Lou Turperw Airport Director, said that in May, 1978 the 
Commission adopted resolution 78-0131 requiring all airlines 
operating at San Francisco International Airport to operate noise 
certificated aircraft by January 1, 1985. As of September 30, 1983, 
75 percent of the aircraft operating at San Francisco International 
Airport are noise certificated in compliance with FAR 36 aircarft 
noise certification standards. Of those currently operating a jet 
fleet, 21 operate only noise certificated aircraft. He felt this was 
a strong show of the airline community effort and spirit for their 
recognition of the Airports noise abatement concerns. The airlines 
rapid conversion to certificated aircraft lias been a primary 
ingredient in the reduction in the number of impacted homes. The 
Airport is far ahead of the Airport's Noise Mitigation Action Plan 
(ANMAP) targets and goals. A couple of years ago 15,000 homes were 
impacted, presently about 8,000 are impacted. 

Mr. Turpen said each airline will receive a certificate of compliance. 

Commissioner Coblentz, on behalf of the Commission, congratulated the 
airlines on a commendable job. 

Mr. Ron Wilson, Director of Community Affairs, handed out 
certificates to the following airlines: Alaska Airlines, American 
Airlines, British Airways. British Caledonian. China Airlines. CAAC, 
Condor Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines, Eastern 
Airlines. LTD* International Airlines, Lufthansa German Airlines, 
Mexicana Airlines, Northwest Orient Airlines, Pan Am, Philippine 
Airlines, Qantas Airways, Singapore Airlines, TWA, Transamerica, US 
Air. 

Mr. Turpen thanked the recipients for helping to achieve the 
Airport's noise objectives. 

Commissioner Goosby said that a press release should be prepared. 



Commissioner Coblentz said he had a request from Michael Harris who 
represents Be My Guest, a San Francisco limousine company, to talk 
about Airport concessions. He told Mr. Harris that the item was not 
on the agenda and cannot be heard unless the Commission so votes. He 
suggested that Mr. Harris contact staff and find out when the item 
would be placed on the agenda. 

Mr. Turpen asked Mr. Harris to contact his office and he would direct 
him to the appropriate staff member. 



Minutes. October 18, 1983. Page 4 



F. DIRECTOR'S REPORT: 

Tne following item was put over to the closed session. 

2. Report on the Study for Free Luggage Carts in Customs. 

Commissioner Kadish asked that the item be put over to the closed 
session due to legal ramifications. 



G. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS : 

Commissioner Kadish asked for an analysis of the number of phones 
available past security, by the gates, in the International Terminal. She 
would like to know how many credit card and regular phones there are as 
well as the usage of each and the Lines that are forming. 



Commissioner Coblentz said he had previously asked for the report on the 
quality of the carpet in the North Terminal. He would like it compared 
with what is being looked at for the International Terminal. 



Commissioner Coblentz said that at the last meeting he raised the question 
of the North Terminal Gift Shop (part of ABC). He said he had a copy of 
the letter written to them, dated October 13, stating that ABC pays 38.6 
percent and the toy shop will pay 20 percent. He would like to hold up 
any question of bids for a toy shop and said he was not trying to 
perpetuate a monopoly, but felt the difference in percentage was unfair. 

Mr. Turpen said this letter was not consistent with the instructions given 
to staff. He said there may have been a misunderstanding and he would 
look into it. 



Commissioner Fleishell said the last time he was in the International 
Terminal he discussed 32 items with Jason Yuen. He was curious about the 
status of those items. One item of concern was that the carousels were 
marked incorrectly and did not reflect the correct arriving flight 
number. He said that Customs had raised the same question. 

Mr. Turpen said he would get a report on the punch List of the 
International TerminaL. 



Commissioner Fleishell said he aiso noticed that the arrival times for 
international flights were on the 24-hour clock. He said that no other 
airport uses the international clock and wondered why SFIA used it. 

Frank Nakashima, Japan Air Lines, said that was being corrected. He said 
that as far as the baggage carousel was concerned there was a malfunction 
in the system and that it has been corrected. 



Minutes, October 13, L983, Page 5 



Items Initiated by Commissioners (Continued) 



Commissioner Goosby asked that the carpet report be placed on the trailing 
calendar . 



Commissioner Kadish asked that the report on the meeter/greeter area be 
placed on the trailing calendar. She said that when a Commission asks for 
a report it should be placed on the trailing calendar unless it is 
responded to at the next meeting. 



Commissioner Coblentz suggested that the concessionaires be put on notice 
that the sale of chewing gum will probably be done away with even if it is 
possible to remove it from the Central Terminal carpet by using a special 
cleaning agent. 

Mr. Turpen responded that he would like to include this in the report 
scheduled for the next meeting. 

Commissioner Coblentz said the concessionaires should be made aware that 
there are probably three votes to do away with chewing gum. 



Commissioner Goosby asked if the development of a questionnaire regarding 
potential concessions in the vacated Medical Clinic space was in progress. 

Mr. Turpen replied that it was and he would get back to the Commission 
with the names of companies and costs. 



H. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 

The following items were unanimously adopted. 

3. Passenger Information System - "You Are Here" Kiosks 

No. 33-0293 Resolution approving contract 

specifications and authorizing 
Director to invite proposals to design 
a Passenger Information System for 
"You Are Here" kiosks within the 
Terminal Building Complex. 

Commissioner Kadish said that in the scope of work, listed on page 
one, there was an implicit assumption that the existing kiosk will 
not be used. She felt that the phrase "or adapting or using the 
existing design" should be added to the sentence that begins "the 
respondent will be responsible for designing the kiosk. . ." 

Commissioner Fleishell said that staff should be specific in telling 
the designer what is wanted. 

Commissioner Goosby asked how long ago the kiosks were installed. 

Mr. Turpen said the kiosks in the North Terminal were installed in 
1979 but tfere not really functional in view of the many changes that 
are constantly taking place. He said he would like to request 



Minutes, October 18, 1983, Page 5 



Pol Op (Continued) 



proposals on an approach. He said that staff has come up with 
several ideas but none of them have matured and been accepted. Staff 
will try again if it is the Commission's wish. 

Commissioner Fleishell commented that as a matter of priority staff 
should worry about signing and then approach the more complex 
information system. 

Mr. Turpen responded that that is being taken care of and that much 
of it is being handled in-house. 



Commissioner Coblentz said he had asked that Mr. Turpen write to the 
Department of Transportation regarding airplane silhouette sings. He 
said he had seen them at a number of American airports and all over 
Europe. 

Mr. Turpen said CALTRANS does not want to redesign their sign. 

Commissioner Coblentz suggested that staff enumerate states and 
countries that have these signs. 

Commissioner Kadish suggested that the airlines might be able to help 
staff with this. 



4. Contract Proposal No. 68252. SFO Shuttle Bus Contract Modification 

No. 83-0294 Commission Resolution authorizing a 

contract modification to the recently 
awarded Shuttle Bus contract. The 
modification will permit the Director 
to make bus modifications which would 
improve the Shuttle Bus operation. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked what the total cost was. 

Mr. Turpen responded that it was about $1500 per bus. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that it was $1260 in the letter from 
American Coach Sales. 

Commissioner Fleishell commented that in the suggested contract 
language change it states: "Upon expiration of this agreement, title 
to such equipment shall transfer to the Airport." He asked if the 
equipment referred to the bus. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airport General Counsel, responded that it did. 
He said that the language that Commissioner Fleishell read was in the 
original agreement and was not changed. 

Commissioner Kadish said that the Airport's specs call for 28 seats 
and that the Orion bus can be expanded from 28 to 30 seats. She 
asked if there was a shortage of seats and how many people stand on 
the bus. 

Mr. Sheldon Fein, Landside Operations, responded that when the 
Airport went out to bid staff indicated that they wanted a minimum of 
28 seats. The low bidder ha3 a slightly larger bus than the minimum 
required and can provide 30 seats at no additional cost, and, the 
luggage racks are longer than the minimum provided for in the 
contract and will be provided at no additional cost. The $1260 is 
for an additional door up front. 



Minutes. October 18. 1983. Page 7 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Commissioner Kadish said that if the minimum bidder did not respond 
to the specifications for the two doors then he was not responsive to 
the bid. She said that he was the low bidder and his buses will hold 
two more people however, the Airport was going to have to pay $1260 
for an additional door. 

Mr. Fein responded that the present shuttle bus has a larger door 
located in the middle of the bus; the specs called for one extra wide 
door located in the center of the bus. Staff has asked how much it 
would cost if an additional door was placed at the front of the bus. 
He said this was not in the specs because a lot of companies could 
not handle it. 

Commissioner Kadish asked what sort of arrangements were being made 
for handicapped people. 

Mr. Fein responded that the buses do not accommodate handicapped 
passengers because parking is provided for the handicapped in the 
courtyards adjacent to the buildings. He said that the transfer of 
handicapped passengers from one terminal to another is handled by the 
airlines. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that he felt the front door was important 
because there have been discussions regarding a charge for the 
shuttle bus service and the absence of the front door would make the 
bus obsolete should this come to pass. 



5. Bid Call - Airport Contract No. 1530 

Site Preparation for Mobile Life Support Unit 

No. 83-0295 Resolution approving the scope, budget 

and schedule for Airport Contract No. 
1530, site preparation for Mobile Life 
Support Unit and authorizing the 
Director of Airports to call for bids

6. Award of Contract No. 919B - $569,800.00

feat of airfield perimeter dike at the

Pol Op (Continuei) 



Osgood Road, Fremont, CA. 94538, in the 
amount of $439. 754.00. 

The purpose of this contract is to 
extend the existing blast shoulder of 
the taxiways to eliminate the dust 
that the outboard jet engines raise 
while passing over unpaved areas. 

Three bids were received on September 
21, 1983, as follows: 

1. Grade Way Construction $439,754 

2. The Lowrie Paving Co. Inc. $454,310 

3. Ghilotti Brothers. Inc. $458,300 

Construction time is 50 calendar days. 

Mr. Turpen asked that the item be put over because the Human Rights 
Commission did not qualify the low bidder. 



The following items were unanimously adopted. 

8. Foreign Flag Carriers Financing Project 

No. 83-0297 Resolution of the Airports Commission 

of the City and County of San 
Francisco requesting the issuance of 
tne City and County of San Francisco 
Economic Development Revenue Bonds 
(San Francisco Foreign Flag Carriers 
Project) . 

Commissioner Goosby asked why the money was needed. 

Mr. Turpen responded that it was a method of financing the 
improvements that are already in place. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked why the law firm and the banker were 
listed, stating that if. in the future, either the attorney or 
financial advisor is changed the Airport would have to redo the 
resolution. 

Mr. Garibaldi responded that under the ordinance that governs this 
type of bond issue the Airport is the responsible department and 
these designations must be made. He said that in actuality the 
foreign flag carriers have selected these people because they are 
really working for them. 



9. Data Processing Contract: Gentry. Inc. 

No. 33-0298 Resolution authorizing an extension of 

the contract with Gentry, Inc., for 
data processing services thru June 30, 
1934 - $68,560. 

Commissioner Goosby said he thought that staff would be ready to 
operate the data processing equipment by this time but now 
understands that staff won't be ready until next July. 

Mr. Turpen reponded that this did not have the consistency of 
attention it needed in order to move ahead and that the delay was due 
to the staffing situation at the time as well as a problem with Civil 
Service. 



Minutes, October 18, 1983. Page 9 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Commissioner Goosby asked why it was felt the situation would be 
better next summer. 

Ms. JoAnn Auerbach, Director of Personnel, responded that the City is 
not competitive in the data processing field and that there are 
numerous data processing positions throughout the City. She said 
that she talked to the City's EDP and found that they too have had 
trouble filling their positions. Ms. Auerbach said she felt that the 
City would probably undertake an intensive recruitment drive. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked if the City has had trouble hiring data 
processing employees during an economic slump how will we be able to 
find them as the industry moves ahead? 

Mr. Turpen felt that if the City makes this a priority item the 
situation should improve. He said he could not guarantee success but 
staff would make a positive effort in the next six months. 



10. Resolution Approving Agreement and Authorizing Invitation for Bids, 
On-Airport Rental Car Concession 

No. 83-0299 Resolution approving the proposed 

Agreement for an On-Airport Rental Car 
Concession authorizing Director to 
invite bids for said concession. 

Commissioner Kadish said that this is for the sixth concession and 
wondered why the first page said "five existing counters through the 
terminal complex." 

Mr. Jerry Copelan, Airport Property Management, replied that there is 
room for six agencies at the five counters. 



The following item was put over to the December 6 meeting. 

11. Clarification of Definition for Type 1 Modification for Construction 
Contracts. 

Resolution clarifying reference to 
errors and omissions in the definition 
of Type 1 Contract Modifications for 
construction projects. 

Mr. Turpen said there was some conceptual ambiguity to item 11 and 
requested that the item be put over to give staff the opportunity to 
look it over.

Special Meeting, October 25, 1983, Page 2 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Donald Fayden, Solomon Brothers, responded that the Bank of America 
cannot bid on revenue bonds. 

Commissioner Coblentz asked how Merrill Lynch' s bid compared to the 
market now. 

Mr. McFayden responded that the market has been backing off and if 
the bid was held now rather than two hours ago the low bid would have 
been closer to 10 percent. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked why this could not have been handled at 
a regular meeting and did the Commission have to meet on the very day 
of the bid. 

Mr. Richard Salladin, Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe, responded 
that the Commission did have to meet the same day.

regular meeting day.

D. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 



Update on Valet Parking Service 

Report covering the three-month period 
from July to September, 1983 on Valet 
Parking Service as requested by the 
Commission. 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Director of Airports, said the quarterly report 
Indicates that the valet parking operation continues to make money, 
consistent with Commission policy. The operation will continue to be 
monitored and a follow-up report will be presented to the Commission 
at the first meeting In February. 



Minutes, November I, 1983, Page 3 



Director's Reports (Continued) 

2. Progress Report on the 1-380 

Report summarizing the status of the 
Highway project scheduled for 
construction in the Airport area, and 
related mitigation programs. 

Mr. Turpen said the $60 million reconstruction program of the 1-380 
interchange is scheduled to begin in the Spring of 1984. Essentially 
the projects that are involved are reconstruction of the main Airport 
interchange and providing a direct linkage to the 380 and 280 
connector. 

Mr. Turpen said a fence has been constructed around the West of 
Bayshore property, consistent with the agreement with CALTRANS and 
the Federal Highway Administration for a study of the San Francisco 
Garter Snake. The second progress report on the study of the garter 
snake has been included for the Commission's information. 

Mr. Turpen briefly reviewed the change in the West of Bayshore 
connectors for the 380 interchange and used a map of the area as a 
visual aid for his explanation. He explained that there would be a 
direct on and off access to the freeway. 

Mr. Turpen concluded by saying he will continue to keep the 
Commission informed. He said a great deal of the credit for the 
modified access to the West of Bayshore goes to Sheldon Fein and his 
staff. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if this was now definite. 

Mr. Fein responded that nothing will be done until the environmental 
study has been completed and that the Airport will have nothing more 
than the conceptual design until then. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if the concept has received written 
approval. 

Mr. Fein responded that he has received transmittal letters 
indicating they were the preliminary designs, however, no written 
commitment has been received. 

Mr. Turpen said the money for the West of Bayshore connections is 
frozen in the original project amount and that these funds will 
remain available in the future, even though they may only partially 
fund the project. He also said that CALTRANS has made a commitment 
that they would exchange some easements for access to the West of 
Bayshore. 



Airline Faithful Performance Bonds 

Report on airline faithful performance 
bond requirements. 

Mr. Turpen said this Item was the result of the Commission's concern 
about faithful performance bonds by the airlines and tenants. He 
said there are two levels: three-to-six months In the permit and non 
lease and use agreement corporations, and, an amount equal to two 
months under the lease and use agreement. 



Minutes, November 1, 1983, Page 4 



Director's Reports (Continued) 



Mr. Turpen said a suggestion has been made, consistent with what 
staff believes is the Commission's desire, that a longer period (3-4 
months) be looked at to cover landing fees and rentals for the 
airlines. He said that this would give the airlines some protection 
should a carrier cease operation. Mr. Turpen said he would be happy 
to talk to the Airline Affairs Committee regarding an increase. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked why the arrearages couldn't be collected 
in a timely manner. 

Mr. Turpen responded that arrearages should be collected in a timely 
manner. He said that if an airline ceases operation a larger 
performance bond might mitigate the exposure to the airlines in 
making up the difference. 

Ms. Angela Gittens, Deputy Director for Business and Finance, said 
the Lease and Use Agreement gives the airlines 90 days to pay the 
Airport before their quarters can be repossessed. Using Continental 
as an example, she said they had just reached the point where the 
Airport could terminate the agreement when the airline went bankrupt. 

Commissioner Kadish said this should be pursued as it would protect 
both the Airport and the airlines. 

Mr. Turpen said he would like the opportunity to explore this with 
the Airline Affairs Committee and said that he would get back to the 
Commission. 

The Commission gave its consent. 



Hilton Expansion - Verbal Report 

Mr. Turpen said that the Hilton has wanted to expand their hotel by 
310 rooms for some time. On September 26 a copy of the Hilton 
Corporation's letter was sent to the Commission outlining their plan. 

Mr. Turpen said he introduced this item today to indicate to the 
Commission that a preliminary meeting was held with Hilton and that a 
staff recommendation and evaluation of the proposal would be ready 
for the December 6 meeting. 

Mr. Turpen explained that this project dates back to 1981. One of 
the primary problems was Hilton's 1998 lease termination date and 
Hilton's concern with amortizing a substantial investment of up to 
$35 million for these rooms over a short period of time. He said 
that the Hilton has come up with a plan to effect the expansion and 
amortize the Improvement over a more substantial period of time, 
recognizing that the Commission was not in a position to extend the 
lease at this early date; they plan to sell bonds to raise the funds 
and amortize the bonds over a period of 30 years. The Hilton would 
pay for the first 15 years and at the end of that time the successful 
bidder (if it is not the Hilton) would assume responsibility for the 
bonds. If there was no successful bidder the Hilton would either 
agree to continue to operate the hotel or pay off the remaining $15 
million, as the Commission desires. 

Mr. Turpen said that a preliminary reading by the Airport General 
Counsel found the proposal to be legally sound. The proposal must be 
evaluated from a business viewpoint and forwarded to the Commission. 



Minutes, November I, 1983, Page 5 



Director's Reports (Continued) 



Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airports General Counsel, said that this would be 
similar to the foreign flag carrier item that was recently before the 
Commission. The Commission would take initial action but ultimately 
the Board of Supervisors would be asked to authorize City bonds to be 
issued. The funds generated by the bond issue would then be loaned 
to Hilton Corporation by the City. 

Commissioner Flelshell said he would like to see this in writing. 

Commissioner Kadish agreed, stating that verbal information is 
difficult to absorb. 

Mr. Turpen said that he wanted to give the Commission notice that the 
subject had been re-opened and if any Commissioner had specific 
concerns or would like specific areas Investigated, staff would be 
happy to do so In advance of the December 6 presentation. 

Commissioner Goosby said he Is Interested In the Hilton's parking 
plan. 

Commissioner Flelshell asked why staff time was being used to help 
work out the proposal. He said that If the Hilton has a proposal, 
why Isn't it presented to the Commission. 

Mr. Norm Hanson, Hilton Corporation, said that for several years 
Hilton has been wrestling with the legal constraints. They have been 
in the process of examining the legalities of using the new vehicle 
available to them In the tax code to finance an airport hotel. He 
said the Hilton has prepared a letter of proposal to Mr. Turpen 
Introducing the subject of a bond issue. (He presented copies to the 
Commission). Mr. Hanson said he would be happy to answer any 
questions. 

There were no questions by the Commission. They asked for time to 
review the proposal. 



ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

Commissioner Flelshell said that on October 28 the Commission received a 
report entitled Status of Accounts - Selected Airlines; three days later a 
revenue report was received. The October 28 report shows what the 
airlines owe the Airport and then gives a comparison with the prior week. 
He said he did not understand the format and asked why It was done this 
way. 

Ms. Glttens said that staff Is trying to pay special attention to certain 
accounts where there are current problems or anticipated problems. 

Commissioner Flelshell asked why the report was so detailed. He said the 
Commission Is only interested in the total amount owed. 

Ms. Glttens responded that she asked for the Information and that the 
document was put together to keep close track of certain accounts. If the 
Commission just wants to receive the summary page she will take care of It. 

Commissioner Kadish also felt that the Information was a little too 
detailed. She asked that staff come up with some means of dealing with 
delinquent accounts. 



Minutes, November I, 1983, Page 6 



Items Initiated by Commissioners (Continued) 



Commissioner Fleishell suggested that standard accounting principles be 
used. He said the idea In providing the information to the Commission Is 
so that the Commission will know that their policies are being carried 
out. He said that he was not at all sure that this was the case. 

Commissioner Fleishell said he would bring up the policy on accounts 
receivable in closed session. He also plans to bring up SFO Alrporter In 
closed session. 



F. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 



The following Items were unanimously adopted: 

5. Modification of Eastern Airlines' Lease & Use Agreement 



83-0305 



Resolution approving a modification to 
Eastern Airlines' Lease and Use 
Agreement whereby Eastern relinquishes 
its Phase III South Terminal space and 
extends Its lease of North Terminal 
space through Phase III. This Is a 
companion measure to the 
United/Eastern sublease. 



Approval of United/Eastern Sublease 
83-0306 



Resolution consenting to the sublease 
by United Airlines of 2720 square feet 
of holdroom space In the North 
Terminal to Eastern Airlines for a 
term of 15-1/2 years, commencing July 
I, 1983 and terminating January 1, 
1999. 



The following Items were put over. 

7. Policy Statement on Commerical Advertising 

Resolution approving the policy 
statement for commercial advertising 
In the Terminal Building Complex and 
Public Parking Garage. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked that this Item be put over to the next 
meeting. 



Vending Machine Policy - Terminal Building Complex 

Resolution adopting a comprehensive 
vending machine policy. 

Commissioner Kadlsh said the Commission asked her to go over the 
wording with Ms. Glttens. She said she had one question. She said 
that the word that was agreed upon and used In newspapers (3), candy 
(D) and cigarettes (D) was "alcoves" and has since been changed to 
"areas". She asked what happened. 



Minutes, November 1, 1983, Page 7 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Ms. GitCens responded that the language was too cumbersome and there 
were some areas where there were no alcoves. 

Commissioner Kadish remembered that the Commission approved having 
the alcoves so that the vending machines could be placed in them. 
Using the word "area" changes the thrust of what the Commission was 
talking about and asked that those words be changed to "alcoves". 

Ms. Gittens said the problem was with the South Terminal where they 
would not try to build alcoves. 

Commissioner Kadish responded that in the long term there will be 
alcoves; the exception would be during construction but the final 
product would have alcoves. 

Mr. Turpen commented that the North Terminal was not designed for 
alcoves. 

Commissioner Kadish said that vending machines were proliferating in 
the North Terminal in areas that were designated; the Commission 
wanted it narrowed down. That is why the alcoves were created in the 
Central Terminal. She felt that if the word "area" was used the 
meaning might eventually be lost. 

Mr. Turpen said that in order to insure there is no mlscommunication 
between the staff and the Commission he would like to put this over 
for two weeks In order to take another look at the North and South 
Terminals and come up with the appropriate language. 

Ms. Judith Epstein, Gannett Company, publishers of U.S.A. Today, 
asked that the Commission develop Informal procedures by which the 
newspapers can meet with staff to try and resolve a problem that Is 
developing regarding the placement of newsracks in the Airport. Ms. 
Epstein told the Commission that newsracks enjoy a separate and 
special status over other vending machines; they have first amendment 
protection, being Integral to the distribution system of newspapers. 

Ms. Epstein stated that the newspapers are not happy with the present 
locations and the restrictions that have been placed on them as far 
as their ability to sell and distribute their papers in the terminals 
(most specifically In the CentraL Terminal). 

Commissioner Goosby asked Ms. Epstein if she had seen the document 
that staff had prepared, and, she responded that she had not. 

Commissioner Goosby said her concerns had been taken into account in 
the document. 

Commissioner Flelshell asked Ms. Epstein If she had ever contacted 
staff to request a meeting. 

Ms. Epstein replied that she had not. 

Mr. Turpen asked Ms. Epstein to give her card to Ms. Gittens and said 
a copy of the document would be sent to her. 

Mr. Alan Freeland, Cooper, White and Cooper, counsel for the San 
Francisco Newspaper Agency, said that In August of this year Mr. Ken 
Hobson, Circulation Director for the Agency, communicated 
Individually with each member of the Commission his concerns with 
respect to the newsracks. He, too, requested a copy of the report 
when available. 



Minutes, November 1, 1983, Page 8 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Commissioner Bernstein requested that the item be put over to the 
next meeting. 



9. Authorization to Bid: Principal Concession Lease and Agreement for 
Retail Sales at the "Hub" In the North Terminal Building 

Resolution approving Principal 
Concession Lease and Use Agreement for 
Retail Merchandising Sales at the 
"Hub" in the North Terminal Building 
and authorizing the Director to Invite 
bids for said concession. 

Mr. Turpen said this item entails the development of a principal 
concession retail space In the North Terminal Hub. United Airlines 
has had a secondary check-In desk In the Hub and had made a decision 
to relinquish that space and some back office space to the Airport. 
The Airport gained a right of first refusal, or option on that space 
that would extend through the end of the year. 

Commissioner KadLsh said that she objected to the fact that It was 
not brought before the Commission in a preliminary stage. She felt 
that the drawing that was Included was not clear and that some of the 
things proposed have never to the best of her knowledge, been 
discussed with the Commission, leading her to wonder why the extreme 
haste. 

Commissioner Kadish said that to the best of her knowledge there was 
never any discussion of an American Dry Goods Store nor, other than 
her proposal, was there a discussion of an art poster shop. 

Commissioner Kadish said that although she was in agreement with 
this, she disagreed with the process and wants more time for 
Commission discussion before it is put out to bid. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked for information on the sales volume of 
other concessionaires In that area. 

Mr. Turpen explained that at some earlier date United approached 
staff with a series of options on space in the North Terminal; this 
Is one of them. The Airport's option on that space extends to the 
end of the year. If the Commission is desirous of pursuing this 
alternative In that location the option must be exercised prior to 
that time. He said that a decision need not be made today but he did 
want to Introduce the subject In concept, recognizing the time frame 
Involved. 

Commissioner Kadish asked for a presentation at the next meeting with 
descriptive material placed on the board so that the Commission has a 
complete understanding of what is being comtemplated. 

Commissioner Flelshell asked how the Airport obtained an option. 

Mr. Turpen responded that United gave the Airport the option. He 
said that the item had been brought before the Commission as 
potential concession space. 



Minutes, November 1, 1983, Page 9 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Commissioner Goosby said that there are 5,854 square feet and only 
1,740 square feet are being discussed. He asked for a breakdown of 
why the full amount was not being considered. 

Commissioner Goosby said that the City uses a 25 percent minority 
involvement and that it was insulting to the affirmative action 
concept to set this at 15 percent. He felt this should be looked at 
again and raised to at least 20 percent, though he personally felt it 
should be 25 percent. 

Commissioner Goosby said he talked with Skip Conrad, Property 
Management, and was dissapointed that the principal concessionaire in 
the Central Terminal took 75 percent of the space because there was 
only a 25 percent restriction on minority, women and small business. 
He said that it had been his hope at that time that more of the space 
would have been given over to subcontractors. He asked that staff 
consider this and obtain the reaction of potential bidders about the 
possibility of only keeping 50 percent of the space. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked how the Airport would come out of this 
financially. He also said that one of the reasons the jewelry shop 
was put in was because it was felt that there would be a series of 
good looking boutiques. He also felt there should be an analysis of 
why the business is failing. 

Commissioner Bernstein said that when leases were cancelled it was 
experience that some consideration be given, and, perhaps the money 
should be returned to Dobbs. 

Commissioner Goosby said that the Museum Society has asked whether or 
not they can legally bid an art poster products shop. He asked if 
they were considered to be another City agency or a non-profit 
group. He said they were grossing over $1 million a year.

DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

1. Public Telephone Service, Boarding Area "D" 

Report outling the scope of public 
telephone service in the areas 
post-security on Boarding Area D. 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, said this Item was In response to 
Commission inquiry into public telephone services in Boarding Area 
D. He said that after a review of the area It was found that almost 
50 percent of the passengers were domestic. He said the telephone 
company has made suggestion concerning changing the phones In the 
boarding area and staff hopes this will solve the problem. The 
change will take place In 30 days and the sLtuatlon will continue to 
be monitored. 

Commissioner Radish said she was concerned about the lack of 
monitoring procedures on the part of the staff and that some sort of 
procedure should be developed. 

Mr. Turpen said that Noon to 2:00 p.m. In the International Terminal 
Is the busiest time of the day and the area will be monitored then.

D. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

There were no items initiated by Commissioners. 



E. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLVING MAJOR POLICY AND OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 

The following items were put over to the December 6 meeting. 

2. Vending Machine Policy - Terminal Building Complex 

Revision of previously submitted 
statement regarding a comprehensive 
vending machine policy. 

Commissioner Coblentz said that he doubted that the item would be 
acted on today as there were only three Commissioners present but 
comments would be heard from anyone who wLshed to address the 
Commission. He said a letter was received from Alan Freeland, 
representing the San Francisco Newspaper Agency. 

Mr. Alan Freeland said the letter does not reflect that, thanks to 
Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airport General Counsel, they met this morning 
with Mr. Conrad and other members of the staff about the practical 
applications of the policy in terms of the number of newsracks and 
the type of newsrack to be used. A meeting has been set for next 
Tuesday to discuss the cost Incurred to the newspapers for locating 
racks. 

Referring to this morning's discussion, Mr. Freeland said that there 
are serious constitutional problems with the proposed policy. Mr. 
Freeland said that he found out at the meeting that there are seven 
locations being proposed for the terminal but that the concern was 
not the number of locations but where they are and whether or not 
they will be effective. He said he was working with staff on some of 
the practical problems inherent in some of the locations; some were 
behind telephone booths and areas not frequented by passengers. He 
said he would like newsracks in the waiting areas past the security 
gates. 

Mr. Freeland said the one provision he wanted to pay particular 
attention to was the requirement that If a newspaper was going to be 
In any of the newsrack locations at the Airport It must, under the 
policy, be In all locations. He said that apart from the 
constitutional problems, It will needlessly encumber the Airport with 
racks that even the newspaper distributor would not want to install 
because the location is not an optimum one. He suggested that this 
provision be reevaluated. 

Mr. Freeland said that Mr. Conrad suggested that the signage issue 
might be reviewed and that some of the out-of-the-way locations might 
be Improved by appropriate signage. 

Mr. Freeland said that the Airport was a prime sales location for the 
Chronicle and Examiner and that the out-of-the-way locations will 
have a severe negative Impact on sales. 

Mr. Freeland said that the newsrack ordinance Is being fine-tuned 
throughout the Bay Area and that they might be able to bring some 
valuable contributions to this process. He urged that this policy 
not be set In concrete until these particular problems can be 
addressed. For example, the policy might have an addenda to it in 



Minutes, November 15, 1983, Page 4 



Pol Op (Continued) 



the form of a map of each terminal, identifing and designating the 
number of rack locations. He said that as it stands now the Director 
determines where the newsracks will be located and he believes that 
to be too broad a discretion. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked what happened to the ordinance he worked 
on with Mr. Freeland several years ago. 

Mr. Freeland said that the ordinance was in draft form on Mayor 
Moscone's desk at the time of his death and was never proceded with. 
He said that about a year ago interest was sparked in a newsrack 
ordinance for San Francisco and the newspapers met with interested 
members of the Board of Supervisors and formed a newsrack committee. 
He said this was an on-going committee of interested papers that 
meet, identify and respond to particular problems. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked what happened to the Mike Semier 
hearings. He said that Mr. Freeland was present to represent the two 
major papers but there are a number of minor papers. He said he is 
aware of First Amendment rights but Powell and Geary Streets was a 
classic example of over-indulgence and if he had anything to say 
about it the situation will not occur at the Airport. He said that 
there must be some mid-way point between the Powell and Geary 
overindulgence and a reasonable handling of the situation. 

Mr. Freeland responded that It requires the cooperation of a lot of 
newspapers and all of the Bay Area papers offer their cooperation at 
these meetings. He said that there Is an element In the publishing 
Industry, typically a Southern California element, that does not 
respond to some of the legitimate points being raised by the City. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that perhaps half of the publications on 
racks In San Francisco come out of Los Angeles. They fly up once a 
month and when the supply In the rack has been depleted they remain 
empty until the next Issue. He said that those publications have the 
same First Amendment rights. 

Mr. Freeland responded that in October of last year a sweep of Union 
Square was conducted with the CLty (representatives of Traffic and 
Engineering) to Identify particular problems, and, at the corner of 
Powell and Geary they found 17 empty newsracks, all belonging to a 
Southern California firm. Mr. Freeland said It was his opinion that 
there Is an existing body of law by which the racks can be cited and 
that It was the common sentiment of the newspapers that they should 
be. He said that they were not cited at the time and It was largely 
due to the urging of the newspapers that this Is now happening. 

Mr. Freeland suggested that perhaps modular racks might be used 
Instead of single unit racks to help ease congestion. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked why the newspapers were against the type 
of racks located In front of Pam Pam. 

Mr. Freeland responded that vandalized newsracks can only be 
addressed by using a standardized rack configuration. The newsracks 
in front of Pam Pam end up being an area where trash collects and the 
merchants either cannot effectively clean the area or it takes extra 
time to get behind the racks. He said that In some ways the City 
might be better off having pedestal or fixed racks in certain 
locations where there are a lot of racks. 

Commissioner Coblentz said this should go back to staff and they 
should work with Mr. Freeland. He said that the Commission Is not 
trying to keep the public from being Informed or suppress free 



Minutes, November 15, 1983, Page 5 



Pol Op (Continued) 



speech, however, the publications in San Francisco range from free 
speech to free love and the Airport will have a proliferation of 
newsracks, creating a bottleneck. Passengers can buy newspapers at 
the various concessions. The concessions can limit the number of 
newspapers but the Airport cannot. He said he realized that there is 
a basic question of free speech Involved, however, traffic cannot be 
Impeded at the Airport. 

Mr. Turpen suggested that the Item be brought back before the 
Commission on December 6. 

Ms. Judith Epstein, representing U.S.A. Today , said that she wanted 
to underscore Mr. Freeland's comments. She said they have reviewed 
the proposed policy and their two principle concerns were: first, it 
appears to be unconstitutional because of the breadth of the 
discretion of the Airport Director with respect to the number and 
placement of newsracks listed in Section A4. She felt that there 
should be some criteria Introduced into the policy that would reflect 
the public safety needs or other public policy Interests of the 
Airport which would limit that discretion. Secondly, the other 
concern, listed In A6, provides for a notice requirement which she 
does not feel comports with due process requirements concerning the 
amount of time and proper notice that Is necessary before vending 
machines or newsracks can be removed. She hoped that these Issues 
can be addressed at the next meeting with staff. 

Commissioner Flelshell asked Ms. Epstein if she was suggesting that 
there be a certain number of racks. 

Ms. Epstein responded that she was suggesting that there be safety 
criteria with which the newspapers could comply. She said that the 
ultimate determination of the number of racks would fall to the 
Commission, however, she hoped that that determination Is consistent 
with some criteria as to the reason for the limitation on the number 
of racks. 

Commissioner Kadlsh said that another concern of the Commission was 
the aesthetics of the racks. 

Ms. Epstein responded that she appreciated the Commission's aesthetic 
concerns but the issue of aesthetics was a difficult one because It 
Ls based on subjective considerations. 

Ms. Epstein concluded that the Airport Is the singular most Important 
opportunity to sell their papers because the demand is there. 

Commissioner Coblentz said he will vote against this unless vending 
machines are prohibited from selling chewing gum. 

Mr. Philip Adams, Canteen Corporation, said that Canteen Is waiting 
to Install the vending machines as soon as the areas are designated. 
He said they also provide cigarette machines in the Host bars; they 
presently have the South and North Terminals. He asked If the 
cigarette machines could be Installed In the Host bars while watting 
for designated areas on the concourse. 

Commissioner Coblentz said this was a staff function and suggested he 
talk to staff. 

Commissioner Flelshell responded that he felt that there was nothing 
the Commission could do to prohibit Host from having cigarette 
machines In their own space. He also suggested working this out with 
staff. 



Minutes, November 15, 1983, Page 6 



Pol Op (Continued) 



Mr. Turpen asked for Mr. Adams' card and said he would get In touch 
with him, Indicating that this would be addressed before the next 
meeting.

project will save the Airport $1.1 million. He felt the Ingenuity of 
the engineer who came up with the Idea should be noted as well as the 
new scheduling techniques being used. 

Commissioner Coblentz said a letter of commendation should be sent. 

Commissioner Kadlsh asked If this came out of the consulting firm's 
work.

Mr. Bouey responded that they do not use consultants on their 
projects; all their work Is done tn-house. 



Commissioner Kadlsh noted that San Francisco International Airport Is 
the only airport In the world to have received six consecutive 
Aviation Safety Awards. She is proud that the Airport has been 
singled out for this unique honor.

for their significant contribution.

D. DIRECTOR'S REPORTS: 

1. Carpet in International Terminal 

Mr. Lou Turpen, Airport Director, said that staff, along with Howard 
Friedman, has been looking into the carpet situation in the Central 
Terminal. He said that the carpet is not satisfactory and staff 
feels that the basic problem is the carpet's color, pattern, and 
texture. Mr. Turpen said that the architects felt that the method of 
cleaning could be made more specific to the type of carpet. He 
indicated that Mr. Friedman has offered to work with the carpet 
manufacturer, Gensler, and staff on the question of responsibility. 
Staff would like to give Mr. Friedman time to meet with these people, 
however, there are only seven months before next summer's activities 
begin. He said the report before the Commission outlines what staff 
feels is a prudent approach. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 3 



Mr. Turpen explained that although his report recommends that a'firm 
position not be taken at this time, the Commission has to be prepared 
to at least concur in principle with staff's preparation of 
specifications for selected replacement of carpet in the Central 
Terminal. He said the high traffic areas are the North and South 
Connectors, the Customs arrival area, and Boarding Area D in the 
vicinity of the concessions. 

Mr. Turpen said he would like the Commission's input on the approach 
that has been outlined: permitting Mr. Friedman to continue and 
allowing staff to prepare specifications for the replacement of the 
carpet. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that the specifications developed by 
staff were approved and followed and the color was approved by the 
Design Review Committee so he does not understand why staff is trying 
to establish responsibility. 

Mr. Jason Yuen, Administrator, Bureau of Planning and Construction, 
explained that staff wanted to determine if the problem was with the 
carpet or the maintenance. He said that Gensler felt that the 
problem is with the maintenance. Mr. Yuen said that if it is the 
carpet then it should be replaced, and if it is the maintenance then 
it should be improved. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that staff was told months ago that the 
proper cleaning technique was not being used. He asked that if the 
specifications were followed and the color was approved, why is staff 
meeting with Gensler Associates and what can be done to resolve the 
problem. Commissioner Fleishell said he does not like the color of 
the carpet and would not have chosen it but he was not a member of 
the Design Review Committee. 

Commissioner Kadish felt that it was not a question of whether or not 
one likes the color but whether or not the color is creating part of 
the cleaning problem. 

Commissioner Fleishell felt that the color was part of the cleaning 
problem and that he would not have approved the color for a business. 

Mr. Gordon Johnson, Gensler Associates, recapped the situation and 
said that staining started occurring several days after the carpet 
was installed. A lighter color carpet does show dirt a lot more than 
a darker color. Gensler was then asked if the carpet: 1) is up to 
specification; 2) is it cleanable; and 3) if it is cleanable, how it 
should be cleaned. Information was given to staff chronicling the 
steps initiated between July and now. The first was to have U.S. 
Testing, an independent testing laboratory, test the carpet to 
determine if it meets the specifications. They found that the carpet 
exceeded the specifications. They next tested the carpet for 
different systems of cleaning and reported that certain methods were 
better than others, and made their recommendations. Gensler then met 
with the manufacturer and carpet cleaning companies and asked them 
for their recommendations on cleaning the carpet. There were two 
carpet cleaning demonstrations at the Airport by two different 
companies with Airport Maintenance personnel present. Since that 
time he was told that the Airport purchased some machines from Host, 
a carpet cleaning equipment manufacturer, that uses a system that, in 
the opinion of U.S. Testing, did work well with the carpet. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 4 



Gensler was then asked to get an estimate from an independent carpet 
cleaning company on the cost of cleaning the carpet and how long it 
would take to prove the point. Mortonson said it would take about a 
month and the cost would be 5x5 a foot or about $15,000. Host 
recommended sending three or four Airport maintenance people to their 
facility in Wisconsin for a one-week training course. 

Mr. Johnson said that throughout this process everyone from U.S. 
Testing to the cleaning companies agreed that the carpet was 
cleanable. He felt that the bottom line is that the carpet will show 
dirt between cleanings, more so than the dark carpet used in the 
North Terminal. He felt that the carpet is maintainable by Airport 
staff so long as they are properly trained, and, that the carpet will 
look good. Host said the carpet will last for years if it is taken 
care of. 

Commissioner Fleishell remarked that there was an additional problem 
in Customs with the carpet fraying where it met the linoleum. 

Mr. Johnson responded that the carpet in Customs was probably laid 
the last two days before the opening and the glue did not have a 
chance to dry. He said it was walked on and heavy objects rolled 
over it when it should not have been touched for 24 hours. There are 
standard seaming methods that were not followed in some cases. He 
said this was a punchlist item to be taken care of by the contractor 
but it has not been done. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked why the delay. 

Mr. Yuen responded that the unraveling began a short time ago, and as 
it unravels it is reglued. He said a vinyl trim piece was placed at 
the edge where the carpet meets the linoleum. 

Commissioner Kadish said that the item was brought before the 
Commission in the event a decision to replace the carpet had to be 
made. She said she could not address the issue of responsibility 
without more information. She felt that there was probably a three 
way involvement: staff not briefing the Commission on the technical 
aspects before installation took place; not having had the testing 
done prior to installation as was done in the North Terminal; and, 
that possibly the architects and carpet manufacturers had some 
technical and professional responsibility in the type of advice given 
relative to what was installed. 

Commissioner Kadish said that based on what has been said staff has 
to take interim steps to determine if the carpet can be cleaned. She 
said that this was a staff responsibility. 

Mr. Turpen said that some of the spots have bled back through after 
being cleaned. At this point, without being able to thoroughly and 
properly clean it, there is a question as to how dirty the carpet is 
getting on a day-to-day basis, as opposed to the staining that 
occurred in the beginning and has not been removed. If the cleaning 
process can remove the stains that appear to be permanent, staff will 
have a better idea as to what will happen with respect to spills. 
Mr. Yuen and Mr. Johnson noted that spills that occur in the North 
Terminal can wait to be cleaned up at midnight because they won't be 
very visible. If a spill occurs in the International Terminal it 
will show up immediately. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 5 



Mr. Turpen said staff will report back in January with a final 
recommendation . 

Commissioner Kadish asked why the Airport repeated a mistake that was 
made in Davies Hall in the placement of a light colored, flat 
textured carpet that had to be replaced. She wondered why staff 
didn't learn from that experience. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if the Commission was being asked to give 
tentative approval for the replacement of the carpet in selected 
areas before it is known whether or not the cleaning process will be 
effective. He said that it appears that staff has already made the 
decision to replace the carpet in certain areas. 

Mr. Turpen responded that attempts are being made to clean and 
salvage the carpet. He said that if the attemps failed there would 
only be seven months before next summer's activities begin and it 
would be prudent to invest staff time in the development of 
specifications for replacement carpet and asked for approval to do 
so. He identified those areas that receive the most abuse as the 
North and South Connectors, the meeter-greeter area, and the boarding 
area. 

Commissioner Goosby wondered why staff did not benefit from the 
experience in the North Terminal. 

Commissioner Kadish said it was her understanding that when the 
specifications were developed for the carpet for the North Terminal, 
with the help of a consultant, they were adopted by the Commmission 
as specifications for all carpeting to be installed from that point 
on. Simultaneously, a policy was adopted stating that when carpeting 
was to be installed it would be put out to bid with a maintenance 
clause. She said that as far as she knew it was not done in this 
instance, however, it was never brought before the Commission so she 
could not comment on it. 

Mr. Turpen commented that he had the same recollection and said he 
asked Jason to investigate the warranty on it. 

Mr. Yuen responded that the warranty to which Commissioner Kadish 
referred was not for maintenance but for wear and defectiveness. 

Commissioner Kadish asked if the same situation applied to the 
Central Terminal. Mr. Yuen responded that the warranty was not for 
maintenance but for wear and defective workmanship. Legally, 
maintenance cannot be included as it is an operational expense. 

Commissioner Goosby said he hoped that the cleaning experiment worked 
even if it meant cleaning the carpet every night. He said it would 
be embarrassing and unfair to the taxpayers to even consider 
replacing the carpet. 



2. Status of Limousine Bid 



A report which outlines the current 
status of the Airport Limousine bid. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 6 



Mr. Turpen said that the report before the Commission was 
straightforward and the key issue is the continuing work with Jack 
London of the Morrison and Foerster firm in reviewing the bid 
specifications in helping to insure the bid is properly structured. 

He said that staff has outlined the highlights of the specifications 
and the item will be brought back before the Commission on January 17 
with a full set of the specifications and a request for authorization 
to bid at that time. This follows the Commission's desire to bid the 
limousine services at the Airport as a replacement to the current 
procedure. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if the other limousine services would be 
able to come out to the Airport on pre-arranged appointments to pick 
up fares. 

Mr. Turpen said they would. He explained that the bid would provide 
a booth for only one operator and the privilege to serve walk-up 
passengers. 



3. Airport Brochures 



Proposed design and publication of an 
Airport-wide informational brochure. 



Mr. Turpen told the Commission that he felt a single photographic 
brochure with the capability of inserting pages (highlighting cargo, 
handicapped parking, etc.) allowing staff to keep updating 
information. 

Commissioner Goosby said that the brochures obtained from various 
Airports were helpful. He commented that some of the brochures 
offered information on the environmental impact and one provided an 
airline schedule. Commissioner Goosby did not feel that such a 
schedule should be part of a brochure printed by the Airport; that is 
the responsibility of the airlines. 

Mr. Turpen said that the brochure used for the Central Terminal 
opening was highly flexible, but he was not sure if that is the 
format the Commission wanted. He asked for the Commission's guidance. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that seven or eight months ago the 
Commission approved $40,000 for what he thought was for the very 
brochure that is now being discussed. He questioned the $23,000 bid 
to put the brochure together, which includes $7,500 for photography. 
He said the best photographers in San Francisco charge $000 a day and 
it would only take three days to photograph the Airport. 

Commissioner Fleishell said this discussion was initiated four" years 
ago. He suggested that a possible answer is to hire someone in the 
business to draw up a brochure and present it to the Commission. He 
said it was inconceivable to spend more than $40,000 and end up with 
a folder that is normally used as a hand-out for press people. He 
thought the Airport was getting a brochure for that money and asked 
if the entire amount had been spent. 

Mr. Turpen said it had. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 7 



Commissioner Kadish commented that the first thing that is important 
is to determine who will read the brochure, to whom it will be 
distributed, where will it be distributed, and why it will be 
distributed. 

Commissioner Kadish pointed out that one of the selling points made 
to the Commission relative to hiring Primo Angeli to do the work for 
the opening ceremony at a cost of $40,000 was the need for a 
brochure; that this would be a highly flexible brochure, and could be 
the basis for any material from this point forward which included 
design, photography, and mechanical art work. She said that the 
Commission has now been presented with a cost estimnate of $24,000 
for an Airport-wide, full-color brochure which includes those things 
just listed and approved for the Central Terminal opening. She said 
that the brochure produced for the Central Terminal opening was not a 
brochure but a folder with some printed material and some 
photographs. Commissioner Kadish did not see anything in the 
proposal that has to do with the brochures of other airports that 
were presented to the Commission. She said that a brochure provided 
by one airport listed its facilities and suggested that this might be 
of value for SFO. 

Commissioner Kadish said that the type of information the brochure 
will provide should be determined, as well as how it will be 
distributed and the people whom it will serve. She said that the 
design, art work and copywriting that the Airport paid $40,000 for 
several months ago should be utilized. Until such time as these 
questions are answered, she will not consider it. 

Mr. Turpen agreed with Commissioners Fleishell and Kadish. He said 
that the brochure first appeared on the trailing calendar on July 17, 
1979. At that time the Airport was generating a number of brochures 
(cargo, transit, handicapped, etc.) and it was assumed that the 
Commission wished to consolidate them. He noted that many of them 
have fallen by the wayside and have not been reprinted. 

Mr. Turpen said he said he would appreciate guidance from the 
Commission and suggested staff be allowed to establish a request for 
proposal and hire someone to tell us what we need. 

Mr. Turpen said unnecessary information, like flight timetables, have 
been eliminated. He said staff looked at trying to integrate 
everything into a single brochure that is flexible and standard size. 

Commissioner Kadish remembered that when discussions were held with 
various agencies who were going to put in the hotel/ motel board one 
of the things proposed was that they would provide small, 
pocket-sized fliers showing what the costs were for various types of 
transportation into the City and a list of public events, etc. She 
said the Airport never picked up on that offer and if it were to be 
pursued perhaps the need for anything but a brochure listing on-sight 
facilities at the Airport might be obviated. 

Mr. Turpen commented that content was not the problem as much as was 
the format. 

Commissioner Goosby asked what type of information requests staff 
receives. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 8 



Mr. Turpen responded that it was for general transportation and cargo. 

Commissioner Fleishell said this was an ineffective use of Commission 
time. He said this was a staff function and if staff did not have 
the expertise then the Commission can authorize hiring someone. 

Commissioner Fleishell said he met with Primo Angeli on what he 
(Primo Angeli) thought the Commission wanted. Though not speaking on 
behalf of the Commission, Commissioner Fleishell told Mr. Angeli that 
he thought there should be two brochures: an 8-1/2" x 11", four 
page, slick brochure with photos and a one-line identification of 
those photos. This brochure would go to the hundreds of people met 
with in Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong on his trip last year with the 
Mayor. The second would be a smaller, pocket-size, three-fold 
brochure giving more detailed information of the Airport's amenities. 

Commissioner Fleishell said the answer might be to get a copy of Los 
Angeles' brochure, change the name and the photographs and plug in 
new numbers. 

Commissioner Kadish suggested coming back to the Commission with some 
material. 

Commissioner Bernstein suggested this item be put over to the first 
week in January. 

Mr. Turpen, by way of clarification, said staff will get back to the 
Commission with an outline of what staff feels is appropriate in the 
way of brochures, the target market, how it will be distributed as 
well as the rationale behind having a brochure. 

Commissioner Goosby also asked for information on how many brochures 
are distributed in Los Angeles and New York. 



E. ITEMS INITIATED BY COMMISSIONERS: 

Commissioner Kadish requested that a staff telephone directory be 
distributed to the Commission. 

Commissioner Fleishell recommended a rough draft be presented to the 
Commission at the December 20 meeting. He suggested that the 
listings be alphabetical as well as by department head, and should 
list the line of succession in each department. 

A motion was made by Commissioner Fleishell and seconded by 
Commissioner Goosby for the development of a directory by the " 
December 20 meeting, and was unanimously carried. 



Commissioner Kadish approved of the breakdown of the new agenda 
format. She hoped that the new format would expedite the development 
of a policy manual; a priority item. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 9 



Commissioner Kadish asked that the policy indicating that no 
concessions are to be approved at the Airport without Commission 
approval be re-enunciated at the next meeting. 

Commissioner Goosby understood that the Airport had appointed a 
representative to the committee dealing with the BART extension to 
the Airport. He hoped that the Commission will be kept apprised of 
the discussions of the committee. 

Commissioner Kadish made a motion, seconded by Commissioner Fleishell 
and unanimously carried, that staff come back at the next meeting 
with a resolution as to how the policy manual is to be developed. 



Commissioner Goosby asked if the Airport representative was a voting 
member of the group. 

Mr. Bob Epifanio, Landside Operations, commented that the Airport was 
not on the BART Advisory Board but the 101 Task Force. 

Mr. Turpen said that he asked Mr. Fein and Mr. Epifanio to prepare a 
report and resolution outlining the Commission's policy with respect 
to mass transit with the BART issue as a sub-set. The representative 
can then pass the Commission's position on in an advisory capacity. 
Not being a voting member, staff will input technical and factual 
information. 

Commissioner Goosby said that before he joined the Commission there 
had apparently been an agreement by the Commission to bring BART into 
the center of the garage. 

Mr. Turpen said there are questions about Southern Pacific, the West 
of Bayshore, and the new interchange, and questions as to whether or 
not there should be a transportation interface on the West of 
Bayshore tying in with Southern Pacific and bringing BART in West of 
Bayshore instead of into the Airport. 

Commissioner Goosby again expressed his desire to keep the Commission 
up-to-date on this. 



Commissioner Goosby asked that when JoAnne Auerbach sends reports on 
the Meet and Confer sessions to please provide the same label 
headings in each report. He thanked Ms. Auerbach for providing the 
reports to the Commission. He said that they should be discussed in 
closed session so that the Commission can give staff some direction. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked who had been appointed as the Airport 
representative to the Task Force. 

Mr. Turpen responded that Mr. Sheldon Fein of Landside Operations was 
the Airport representative. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 10 



Commissioner Fleishell said that the President was Quentin Kopp and 
asked if any thought had been given to making the Commission's views 
known to him. 

Mr. Turpen responded that the Airport was not part of Supervisor 
Kopp's group. He said that the resolution to be prepared for the 
Commission will synthesize previous Commission resolutions on mass 
transportation. The posture that the Commission takes can then be 
officially offered to the task Force. 



F. AGENDA ITEMS INVOLING MAJOR POLICY OR OPERATIONAL DECISIONS: 

The following item was put over to the January 17, 1984 meeting. 

4. Policy Statement on Commercial Advertising. 

Resolution approving the policy 
statement for commercial advertising 
in the Terminal Building Complex and 
Public Parking Garage. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that he ran across a case in Washington, 
D.C. that dealt with Washington National and Dulles airports that 
said that airports which have advertising policies may not limit the 
content of the advertising. Commission Fleishell asked Mr. Garibaldi 
if the analysis of the case that he requested had been sent to staff 
and the Commission. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airport General Counsel, responded that the 
Commission had not received a copy of the analysis. 

Commissioner Fleishell requested copies be sent to the Commission. 



5. Policy on Subleasing by Airlines. 

No. 83-0327 Resolution establishing 15 percent of 

direct costs as the limit which an 
airline may charge as an 
administrative charge pursuant to a 
sublease. 



6. Authorization to lease space to the U.S. Government for use by the 

Drug Enforcement Administration. 

No. 83-0328 Resolution authorizing the Director of 

Airports to enter into an agreement to 
lease 1051 square feet of office space 
to the U.S. Government for use by the 
Drug Enforcement Administration. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 11 



Commissioner Fleishell questioned the statement "... prior to 
February 15, 1983 the rent will be" ....■ and after February 15, 1983 

the rent will be " yet the lease was being signed in December. 

1983. 

Ms. Angela Gittens, Deputy Director of Business and Finance, 
responded that the date should read February, 1984. She explained 
that staff wanted to bring it to the Commission early so that if the 
government agreed (which they had by the time of this meeting) it 
could be done before the beginning of January and they could move out 
so that the South Terminal renovation could begin. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that the Airport was paying them to move 

out early and read from the lease " a one time rent concession 

is a small price to pay for the advantage of early termination." 

Ms. Gittens responded that it is a rent concession. 

Commissioner Fleishell said that you are paying when you fail to 
collect money. 



7. Supplemental Appropriation for Six (6) Window Cleaner Positions, 
$138,082. 

No. 83-0329 Resolution requesting (1) 

appropriation of $138,082 to fund six 
Window Cleaner positions, and (2) 
reduction of $154,000 in the amount 
budgeted for the window cleaning 
contract. 

Commissioner Goosby asked if there was an existing Civil Service list 
for window cleaners. 

Mr. Dennis Bouey, Deputy Director for Facilities, Operations and 
Maintenance, said that there was not. He said that six people have 
been hired and they were all referred by the Civil Service 
Commission. He said they are all being paid out of temporary 
salaries and they will take the Civil Service test when it is given. 

Commissioner Bernstein said that if the railing in the Central 
Terminal could be moved out 18-inches perhaps window cleaners 
wouldn't be needed. 

Mr. Bouey said staff was looking at barriers there and elsewhere in 
the terminal if it is consistent with what Mr. Yuen and the 
architects want. 

Mr. Bouey commented that there are 270,000 sq.ft. of glass in the 
three terminals, the Engineering and Maintenance buildings and he 
felt the six window washers are needed. 

Mr. Yuen said he asked Gensler about proposals for either moving the 
railing out or building another one. 

Commissioner Kadish asked that this be put on the trailing calendar 
for a report in January. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 12 



Award of Contract No. 1013 
Computerized Parking Control System 

No. 83-0330 Resolution approving award of Contract 

No. 1013 to Autoscan Systems, Inc., 
for $1,016,667. 

Mr. Turpen explained that this was a re-bid. There was one 
discrepancy in Autoscan' s bid; there was a written medical. Staff 
recommends waiving the discrepancy, and, according to the City 
Attorney, it is perfectly legitimate. Staff recommends awarding the 
contract to Autoscan, the low bidder. 



Commissioner Fleishell said that the resolve in the resolution asks 

that the Commission " reject all other bids" yet we are not 

rejecting any bids. 

Commissioner Kadish commented that there would be problems if all 
bids were rejected and something happened with the first bidder. 

Mr. Don Garibaldi, Airport General Counsel, responded that this is 
the standard format for all resolutions with respect to bids; to 
accept the low bid and reject all others. He said that once the 
contract is awarded to the low bidder, performance bonds and other 
bonds go into effect, which is what the Airport's penalty is if the 
contractor does not go forward after the award of contract. 

Commissioner Bernstein said he reviewed a copy of a letter of protest 
from Trindell. 

Mr. Garibaldi said that Trindell's letter was received after the 
specified time for filing any protest. The letter was reviewed and 
the first three items relate to technical specifications, and that 
research indicates that there is no deviation in substance from the 
specifications. Staff is satisfied that the contract can be awarded 
to the low bidder. 



The following item was unanimously adopted as amended. 

9. Award of Professional Services Agreement. 

No. 83-0331 Award of the Professional Services 

Agreement for testing of construction 
materials of Phase I & II of the South 
Terminal Modernization and Replacement 
Program. Cost not-to-exceed $450,000. 

Commissioner Fleishell asked why this item was not bid. 

Mr. Yuen responded that this was a professional services contract. 
He said this firm was chosen because it had the lowest price and 
staff has found their work to be competent. 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 13 



Commissioner Fleishell questioned the statement in the resolution 
that reads: "RESOLVED, That the Commission hereby approves the 
agreement on file with the Secretary." 

Mr. Don Garibaldi responded that it refers to the contract that is 
attached to the resolution. He said it should have another statement 
directing the Director to enter into the agreement on behalf of the 
Commission. 

Commissioner Kadish suggested that the wording be changed. 

Mr. Yuen called Commissioner Fleishell' s attention to the last 
sentence in the paragraph that states this firm had the lowest price. 

Commissioner Fleishell said the wording in the resolution should 
grant authority to the Director to enter into a contract. 



G. CONSENT CALENDAR OF ROUTINE ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS: 

The following items were unanimously adopted: 

10. Bid Call - Airport Contract No. 1449- 
Replacement of Cable 12TA-6. 

No. 83-0332. Resolution approving the scope, 

budget, and schedule for Airport 
Contract No. 1449, Replacement of 
Cable 12TA-6, and authorizing the 
Director of Airports to call for bids 
when ready. 

The purpose of this contract is to 
replace a defective cable serving one 
of two sources of electric power to 
rental car tenants on the south side 
of the terminal roads. 

Construction time is 210 calendar days. 



11. Award of Airport Contract No. 1530 

Site Preparation for Mobile Life Support Unit. 

No. 83-0333 Resolution awarding Contract No. 1530 

to the lowest, regular and responsible 
bidder, the Lowrie Paving Company, 
Inc., 1321 Lowrie Avenue, P.O. Box 
2465, South San Francisco, CA 94083 - 
761-2265. 

Two bids were received on November 8, 
1983 as follows: 



Minutes, December 6, 1983, Page 14 



Contractor Amount Bid 

1. Lowrie Paving Company, Inc. $49,500.00 

2. J.M. Construction $72,000.00 

Construction time is 60 calendar days. 



12. Philippine Airlines Rental Credit - $8,107. 

No. 83-0334. Resolution approving rental credit for 

Philippine Airlines in the amount of 
$8,107 for certain improvements to the 
International Terminal. 



The following item was put over. 

13. Assignment of Concession Agreements for Operation of Video Game Room. 

Resolution consenting to the 
Assignment of Atari, Inc. - Leases for 
Video Game Rooms in the North Terminal 
and Central Terminal to Atari 
Adventure Corporation. 



Commissioner Goosby asked if Atari explained why they were changing 
the lease name to Atari Adventure Corporation. 

Commissioner Fleishell responded that under the terms of the 
assignment the assignor still retains full responsibility for the 
contract so their motives are not important. 

Commissioner Bernstein asked if there should be some sort of 
investigation to determine if they will be as good as the master 
operator. He asked if this was merely an assignment of the lease or 
an assignment of the operation. 

Commissioner Fleishell responded that since this is a percentage 
lease the performance of the leasee is important and staff should
